Marijuana seized, trucker arrested

A California truck driver was arrested and his refrigerated truck impounded Monday morning in DeSoto County after a search showed the truck was carrying 460 pounds of marijuana.

Chief Willie Huff, chief law enforcement officer for the Mississippi Department of Transportation, said the truck had pulled in to the weigh station in Nesbit about 7 a.m. Monday.

The truck had a license plate in the front window and the driver’s log was missing several required entries.

“The officer became suspicious of the driver’s actions and the answers to the officer’s questions,” Huff said.

MDOT officials received consent to search the vehicle, loaded with a shipment of celery and chili peppers.  Full story HERE
