RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — The South Dakota Highway Patrol says a trooper who stopped a vehicle on Interstate 90 discovered nearly half a ton of marijuana.
The trooper stopped the pickup truck for speeding east of Rapid City on Friday, and authorities say a drug dog uncovered numerous bales of marijuana under a cover in the back of the pickup.
A 40-year-old Massachusetts man was arrested on drug charges including possession of 980 pounds of marijuana.
