Police seize 115 pounds of pot in Va.
Two men were arrested after police found about 115 pounds of marijuana in their 18-wheeler during a traffic stop on the Beltway last week.
Police participating in an operation to intercept drugs pulled over Alexis Paz, 38, and Felix Rodriguez, 45, for an equipment violation on Interstate 495 near Van Dorn Street Wednesday evening. The pot was found inside the truck’s trailer.
The men, both of Miami, Fl., were each charged with transporting controlled substances and possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute. Paz was also charged with cocaine possession.
