Muskogee Police Seize 165 Pounds Of Marijuana

It began as a traffic stop and ended as the biggest drug bust in Muskogee's history.

31-year-old Juan Goana Junior is facing drug trafficking charges. He was pulled over while driving a UHaul through town. He was acting nervous, so police searched the vehicle.

Inside they found 165 pounds of marijuana, wrapped in cellophane, packed in a big screen TV. Drugs aren't an unusual find for authorities.

Muskogee sits on US Highway 69, a popular road for drug traffickers. Muskogee County Sheriff’s Office K9 officer Jim Williams: "so it’s a big problem. Do we have a hold on it? No. Will we ever get a hold on it? Probably not. But if we don't do something it’s going to get worse."

The marijuana has a street value of almost $200,000.

Muskogee authorities aren't sure where it was going, but they believe it came from Mexico.
