According to the Mississippi Department of Transportation, its enforcement officers spotted the tractor trailer pulling through the I-55 northbound inspection site around 8:30 a.m. today. The truck had two company names on it, prompting officers to stop the driver and inspect his paperwork.

An officer “become suspicious of the driver’s actions and answers to the officer’s questions,” MDOT’s statement said. The department said the officer then obtained permission from the driver to search the trailer.  More HERE
