Arizona DPS Finds Marijuana in Georgia Man's Truck -- Lots of It
|That's what 480 pounds of weed looks like.|
Arizona Department of Public Safety officers made a substantial score last week, when they swiped more than 450 pounds of weed from a trucker from Georgia.
Officers found the weed after they stopped the truck on Interstate17 just north of Phoenix for an equipment violation and a safety inspection.
After police searched the rig, a police dog was called in for a more thorough search of the truck.
The pooch apparently has a nose for chronic because he found about 480 pounds of weed stashed in luggage within the truck's sleeper berth.
The driver of the truck, 35-year-old Tommy Lee Pinkins, of Moultrie, Georgia, was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on charges of possession and transportation of marijuana for sale and illegal control of an enterprise.
