600lbs of pot found in semi-truck

OKLAHOMA COUNTY, OK (KSWO)- A man is behind bars in Oklahoma after authorities say they found nearly 600 pounds of marijuana in the semi-truck he was driving.

Oklahoma County deputies pulled him over for driving erratically. One deputy says when he got to the front of the truck to talk to the suspect, he noticed the man had multiple cell phones on him, and an overwhelming smell of air freshener.

Authorities say this bust is a big help in the war on drugs.

"It's significant anytime you can take that much off the street at one time," said Mark Opgrande with the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies also noticed the man was not on his trucking route. After a K-9 unit was called in, they found 11 duffel bags full of marijuana. The suspect was booked on trafficking charges.
