DUBOIS, Idaho – Idaho State Police say a traffic stop in eastern Idaho led to the discovery of 800 pounds of marijuana worth more than $3 million.
Police in a news release on Friday say 37-year-old Jonathan D. Speckman of Hainesville, Illinois, was taken into custody Dec. 15 on suspicion of trafficking marijuana.
Police say Speckman was pulled over for a traffic violation on Interstate 15 near Dubois. Authorities say a drug-sniffing dog detected the presence of drugs, and police obtained a search warrant for a pickup and trailer.
A Clark County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman says Speckman was being held Saturday in the Clark County Jail with a bond of $100,000.
It’s not clear from online records if Speckman has an attorney.
