PUTNAM COUNTY, Ind. – About 260 pounds of hydroponic marijuana was found concealed in a load of fresh lettuce aboard a semi in Putnam County on Wednesday.
Indiana State Police say a trooper made the discovery during a routine commercial vehicle inspection on eastbound I-70 at about 7:32 a.m.
During the inspection, the officer reportedly noticed several criminal indicators and then discovered the pot, estimated to have a street value of $1 million.
Two occupants of the truck, 33-year-old Jorge Blanco-Diaz of Miami, Florida and 40-year-old Adan Labanino Delacruz of Cutler Bay, Florida, were both arrested and charged with dealing marijuana.
Police believe the two were traveling from Colorado to Florida.
