Amarillo, TX- More than 130 pounds of marijuana is off the streets after a traffic stop in Carson County.

38-year-old Darnell Taylor of Oklahoma was traveling east on I-40 last week when he was stopped near Conway for following too closely.

A DPS trooper searched the vehicle and found $43,000 worth of marijuana hidden in the bed of the truck.

Taylor was booked into the Carson County Jail.

If convicted, he could spend the next 20 years in prison.
