Officials Confiscate 28 Pounds of Marijuana
KREX News Room
MESA COUNTY, Colo. A man and woman have been arrested for allegedly transporting 28 pounds of marijuana through Colorado.
The incident happened on Wednesday on the Interstate 70 near milepost 14.
Stacie Garza of Texas and Bruce Reuter of Nevada were pulled over after law enforcement noticed several items in the rear view mirror causing a vision obstruction.
The suspects later agreed to a voluntary search of the vehicle, where the officer discovered a zip lock baggie of suspected meth in the back seat.
After searching the trunk of the car, three cardboard boxes containing bricks of marijuana were also discovered.
Officials say the total weight of 28 pounds is far more than personal use, but consistent with distribution.
They are currently being held in the Mesa County Detention Facility with no bond.
