DPS troopers find 34 pounds of marijuana in traffic stop

Amarillo, TX - Two people face felony charges after Texas state troopers say they found marijuana, which they say is worth more than $211,000, stashed in the suspects' vehicle.

In a traffic stop Tuesday afternoon near Vega on Interstate 40, troopers say they found 34 pounds of marijuana hidden inside the trunk.

The suspects, 26 year-old Mynor Ivan Arana of Houston and 32 year-old Nourak Chanthalangsy of Fresno, California, were booked into the Oldham County jail on third-degree felony charges for possession of marijuana.

Troopers believe the suspects were transporting the drugs from Fresno to Norman, Oklahoma.
