Indiana SP Drug Bust March 2019

Two Indianapolis men were arrested for dealing marijuana after a traffic stop on Interstate 70 Wednesday morning. A state police trooper stopped a box truck on I-70 eastbound near the Mooresville/Plainfield exit for following too closely. While talking with the men, the trooper detected the aroma of marijuana and searched the vehicle. During that search, the trooper discovered the men were transporting approximately 250 pounds of marijuana and 50,000 vape cartridges filled with THC in the cargo area of the truck. The street value of the marijuana is estimated at $2.5 million, while the vape cartridges are valued at about $1 million.
