More than 100 pounds of marijuana is seized out in Childress County following a traffic stop. DPS officials say they pulled over a 2007 Lexus last week traveling south on US 287 near Childress when a trooper discovered several packages of marijuana and cannabis oils in the trunk.
According to DPS, the drugs were worth $622-thousand dollars and authorities believe they were being transported to Dallas.
The driver, 29-year-old Juan Pone Mora of Green Bay, was arrested and charged with felony possession of marijuana.
He has since bonded from the Childress County Jail.
