More than 200 pounds of marijuana was retrieved after a traffic stop on a vehicle just across the Utah border today. The truck was pulling a trailer hauling automobiles. The trooper found the semi truck was not authorized to be hauling the load and had forged the log book. Following the stop the trooper did a search of the trailer and found loads of marijuana in a couple of the trunks on some of the vehicles. The weed that was seized was high grade with a street value of approximately 1.7 million dollars. The Wyoming troopers believe the product was grown in California and was headed for the Detroit, Michigan area. The driver was charged with felony distribution.
