A routine traffic stop along Interstate-80 in central Iowa has uncovered $2 million worth of marijuana.
On Tuesday, Dallas County Sheriff’s Deputies pulled over a pick-up with Colorado plates for a routine traffic violation. The driver’s actions, however, prompted deputies to bring in a drug-sniffing dog. The dog detected drugs.
Deputies found nearly 700 pounds of marijuana in the vehicle. Authorities say the stash was worth about $2 million on the street.
Michael Suitt of Centennial, Colorado — the pick-up’s driver — was arrested and faces drug charges. He’s being held in the Dallas County Jail on a $42,000 bond.
