While possession of marijuana has been legal in Colorado since 2014, it's certainly not legal to carry across state borders—especially not this much. A Colorado man was busted with over a hundred pounds of weed in his truck's not-so-hidden compartment, thanks to bags falling from the flatbed trailer and onto Interstate 80, KDVR reports.
Working on a tip from someone driving behind the vehicle that saw packages tumbling out of it, Nebraska State Patrol Troopers recovered the fallen package before starting the hunt for the trailer, pulled by a Dodge Ram down the interstate.
They located the trailer in the early afternoon around 3 p.m., revealing a haul worth well over $360,000 in a compartment hidden underneath the trailer bed.
The State Patrol was quick to post about the bust on social media, tweeting and sharing photos of the findings to thousands.
The Nebraska State Patrol Troop C also tweeted: "If you are carrying over 120 pounds of marijuana, pack it so that it doesn't fall out while driving down the interstate."
The duo was arrested and taken to Buffalo County Jail, where 48-year-old Charlie Red of Colorado and 29-year-old Damaisy Rodriguez of Florida face charges of Possession of Marijuana over a pound, Possession With Intent to Deliver, and No Drug Tax Stamp.
