One Ton of Marijuana Found in Big Rig

St. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – A big marijuana bust by agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  They seized 2,300 pounds from a parked tractor-trailer pulled over on Interstate 44 near Pacific Tuesday.

The drugs were wrapped up in several dozen, burlap bags found in a hidden compartment. ICE agents say the marijuana had a street value of more than $2 million.

No word on where the marijuana came from or was destined. No charges have been filed against the truck driver at this time.
