Almost 84 pounds of processed marijuana was retrieved from the hidden compartments.
In a separate stop, a Minnesota resident was arrested for marijuana transport following a a speeding violation, and the drug dog was called. Eleven pounds of packaged marijuana was located in black bag in the vehicle.
