Pot Bust

It was the wrong kind of green during yesterday's St. Patrick's Day: A drug discovery in Clinton county nets about 70 pounds of pot.

The Highway Patrol says the traffic stop happened on I-35 and the driver gave conflicting statements. He also denied a request to search the vehicle, so patrol K-9 "Charlie" arrived to sniff out the scene. Troopers say they discovered about 70 pounds of marijuana in the trunk and a thousand dollars in cash. The Minnesota driver was arrested for possession and intent to deliver. He was taken to the Clinton County Jail.
