Texas Authorities Seize $3.4 Million in Drugs

In San Patricio, Texas a routine vehicle inspection last Tuesday merited an arrest after the police discovered that a tanker truck moving through the inspection was loaded with 3.9 tons of marijuana. This amounts to about 8,000 pounds of the drug. The Texas Department of Public Safety officials were shocked when they uncovered the stash hidden in the tanker truck, and a trooper claims that no one suspected to discover the drugs when the tanker was stopped. A trooper says that he halted the truck to perform a routine visual inspection but then discovered the drugs.

The driver was arrested for possession of marijuana and is currently being held on a $1 million bond. There are many times that drivers may not know that the vehicle they are driving is full of a dangerous narcotic. Many times drug rings will recruit innocent individuals to rent or drive their vehicles without ever letting them know that they will be transporting narcotics from one place to another. In these situations, it can lead to the arrest and eventual conviction of an innocent individual who does not deserve to suffer the punishments that are connected with drug possession or trafficking.
