FHP Finds 170 Pounds of Marijuana During Traffic Stop

About 170 pounds of marijuana worth some $1.5 million was discovered by a Florida Highway Patrol K-9 unit during a stop of a tractor-trailer last month, officials said Wednesday.

The tractor-trailer car hauler was stopped for dangerous driving and following too closely on I-75, FHP officials said.

During the stop, the K-9 became alerted to the presence of the drugs, officials said. When troopers searched the truck, they found the large amount of marijuana.

No other details were released.
