Over 100 pounds of marijuana was found in the SUV that four suspected drug traffickers were traveling in on Interstate 80, just east of Reno, NV on Monday. After the vehicle was stopped, 22-year-old Devin Peterson stole a Nevada state trooper's vehicle, then committed suicide with the trooper's shotgun.
According to Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Chuck Allen, there were 109 pounds of marijuana found inside of the 2013 Ford Explorer. The drugs have an estimated street value of $500,000. Three of the four suspects, all from Jacksonville, FL, are being held on $150,000 bail each at a Reno jail.
