Investigators with the Jackson County Drug Task force initiated an investigation into the trafficking of large amounts of marijuana on Interstate 10. On February 23, police observed a Ford truck driving erratically on the highway. The car was stopped, and upon making contact with the occupants, police deployed narcotics detection canines around the vehicle.

Digital scales a .40 caliber Glock pistol with laser sights were found during a search of the car’s interior. The three men in the vehicle were all charged with trafficking marijuana and placed under arrest by the Florida Highway Patrol.
