I-40 Pot Bust

Nearly $161,000 worth of drugs are off the street following a drug bust on I-40 near Amarillo.

Troopers say they stopped 35-year-old Fredrick Lundsford for a traffic violation and noticed signs of criminal activity.

A drug sniffing dog pointed the officers to 496 lbs. of marijuana hidden underneath the bed cover of his pick up.

They arrested Lundsford and booked him into the Potter County Jail for possession of marijuana.
