110lbs of marijuana seized from a traffic stop

The Missouri Highway Patrol posted a photo to Twitter Friday night that showed someone’s weekend plans had gone up in smoke.

“110lbs of marijuana seized from a traffic stop!” the patrol wrote via Twitter.

The attached photo shows dozens of bags of marijuana.

Sgt. Collin Stosberg stated that the bust occurred in Platte County. A trooper detected the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle, and a probable cause search revealed the stash in a hidden factory compartment.


A 31 year old Vista California man was arrested and charged with trafficking.

“#JustSayNo #MakeSmartChoices,” the patrol wrote on Twitter.
