A Texas K-9 discovered an estimated $1.7 million worth of marijuana and mushroom-laced candy bars during a traffic stop in North Texas last week, authorities said.
In a Facebook post Saturday, Wise County Sheriff Lane Akin said a deputy stopped a white Toyota Tacoma pickup truck pulling a U-Haul van trailer after it was spotted swerving erratically. Wise County is located in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area.
The driver, who Akin described as “exceedingly nervous,” told the officer that he and his grandmother, who was sitting in the passenger seat, were headed to a funeral in Southeast Texas.
The grandmother, however, told the officer a different story, explaining that the two were driving to Tennessee and had a trailer full of furniture with them, Akin said.
