Following a traffic stop on I-40, DPS finds more than $49,000 worth of marijuana.

Just after 11 on the morning of August 29, a trooper stopped a Ford F-250 pick up traveling east on I-40, for a traffic violation in Carson County.

The officer discovered 110 pounds of marijuana inside the bed of the pickup.

Alan John Puff and Steven Allen Sowels Jr, both 20, were placed under arrest for possession of marijuana, a second-degree felony.

They were booked into Carson County jail.

The drugs were allegedly being transported from Tucson, Arizona, to Fort Wayne, Indiana, where the two are from.
