ISP Officer Makes $386K Drug Bust

At about 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Cpl Kessler stopped a vehicle for speeding on I-90 near milepost 46 (between Pinehurst & Kellogg). Cpl Kessler became suspicious that the driver, a 40-year-old male, was attempting to smuggle drugs through Idaho.  Cpl Kessler obtained written consent to search the vehicle from the driver and upon searching the vehicle located several large duffle bags that were filled with what appeared to be marijuana.  The total seizure of marijuana weighed approximately 120.75 lbs with an estimated street value of over $386,000.  The driver was arrested and charged with trafficking marijuana.
