115 Pounds of Marijuana Seized at Canadian County Truck Stop

Canadian County Sheriff's deputies were talking with a truck driver at 6:15 a.m. at the TA truck stop near 501 S. Morgan Road when they asked if they could search a vehicle he was hauling.

The vehicle was a red 2013 Chevrolet Impala, and the trucker reportedly consented to the search. The truck driver was hauling the truck from Los Angeles to Memphis.

Deputies found bundles of high-grade marijuana, weighing a total of 115 pounds inside the vehicle. Deputies say the street value of the marijuana is approximately $650,000.

After an interview, deputies said the driver had no knowledge of the marijuana and he was released. Deputies do have a suspect and state charges are going to be brought to the Canadian County District Attorney's Office.
