MARION, Ill. (WTVO) — Ever seen enough weed that is the about same weight as a 12-year-old? Because officers in Marion, Illinois, certainly have.
The Marion Police Department posted a picture on Facebook Monday showing the bust, and it is safe to say that it was on the larger side.
The drugs weighed in at 82 pounds.
While most of the weight was in marijuana flower, three trash bags full, they also confiscated 30 bottles of tincture and a large amount of pre-rolled joints.
Marion Police said the marijuana was found after they pulled over 44-year-old William Davis, of Lexington, Mississippi after they spotted him speeding through a construction zone around 1 a.m.
Officers said they noticed the three bags in the back of the vehicle.
Davis was arrested and booked into the Williamson County Jail on charges of manufacturing/delivery of less than 5,000 grams of cannabis, trafficking in less than 5,000 grams of cannabis, driving with a revoked or suspended license, and speeding in a construction zone.
