Two men who were allegedly transporting about 65 pounds of pot were arrested yesterday (11-4-11) following a traffic stop on I-44.

Troopers stopped the tractor trailer for failing to display proper identification about 7:30 near Route 125 in Greene County. Sgt. Jason Pace says a dog alerted authorities to two boxes of marijuana hidden inside the big rig.
