Wyoming Highway Patrol seizes more than $7M worth of marijuana during traffic stop

WHP 7M Traffic Stop

Around 11:30 a.m., a trooper with the state’s highway patrol stopped a Dodge Ram pickup truck that was pulling a flatbed trailer. During the inspection, the trooper’s K-9 officer was “alerted to the odor of narcotics within the load of the trailer,” the Wyoming Highway Patrol said in an online statement. Further investigation revealed a massive amount of marijuana, which highway patrol officials said had an estimated street value of $7.3 million. The Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation and the Wyoming Highway Patrol are currently investigating the case.
