Potter County Deputies confiscate close to 70 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop on I-40 W.

Officers say the 24 year old male from Las Vegas refused to allow officers to search his car.

A Narcotic Detection Canine came to the scene and smelled marijuana.

Deputies found 69 pounds of pot hidden inside of 2 duffle bags.

The estimated street value of the marijuana is $400,000.

The man was arrested and booked into Potter County.
