WICHITA FALLS, TX (KSWO) –A traffic stop near Iowa Park, Texas, resulted in a huge drug seizure.

Around 4 p.m. Monday, a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper stopped a 2016 Chrysler mini-van for a traffic violation on U.S. 287 near Iowa Park. During the stop, a DPS K9 alerted to the smell of drugs in the vehicle. The trooper found several large duffle bags in the back seat filled with marijuana.

The total weight of the seized marijuana was more than 174 pounds.

The driver, 64-year-old Samuel Herschel Clauder II of Arcata, California, was arrested and booked into the Wichita County Jail for felony possession of marijuana.

The marijuana was reportedly being taken from California to Florida.
