50 pounds of marijuana seized during traffic stop
COLUMBIA - The Missouri State Highway Patrol seized 50 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop.
Bagfuls of the drug were piled into the back of a bright blue pick up truck shown in a tweet from MSHP.
Yusniel Morales-Oliva, who has an address in Florida, was arrested Thursday and is charged with possession of a controlled substance.
The MSHP tweet hinted Morales-Oliva may have tried to argue the drugs were not going to be trafficked.
The tweet said: "Regardless of what state you're in, vacuum sealed packages of ANY drug wedged inside door panels is not for 'personal use.'"
(CORRECTION: An earlier version had the suspect's name spelled wrong.)
