While inspecting the truck, the trooper noticed several "criminal indicators." When the trooper started searching the trailer, he found 260 pounds of hydroponic marijuana concealed within a load of fresh lettuce.
On the streets, the marijuana has an estimated value of $1,000,000. The driver, Jorge Blanco-Diaz, 33, and co-driver, Adan Labanino Delacruz, 40, were both taken into custody. Both men are preliminarily charged with dealing marijuana.
The incident remains under investigation.
