They stop a vehicle for speeding in the US and find 30 kilos of marijuana

A man who was stopped by the Florida Highway Patrol in Jacksonville, in the northeast of the state, for speeding was arrested after agents found about 30 kilos of marijuana hidden in briefcases, the institution reported on Monday.

The arrest occurred over the weekend near Jacksonville International Airport, when a 27-year-old man who was speeding in a rented car in the vicinity of the airport was stopped and the agents detected, when requesting documentation, a strong smell of marijuana coming from inside.

Despite the fact that the man, whose identity was not disclosed, told the agents that he had a licensed weapon in the car and nothing else, they proceeded to inspect the car, due to the penetrating smell of marijuana, and discovered the 27 kilos (60 pounds), with a market value of $ 120,000.

Highway Patrol "stopped an illegal speeding offender and discovered more than 60 pounds of marijuana in the vehicle. The suspect was also armed with a loaded pistol. Another great example of agency teamwork between the FHP and DEA (US Drug Enforcement Administration)", said the FHP on social networks.
