A ton of marijuana found in a semi truck trailer in Muskogee

Muskogee Police make the biggest pot bust in that community’s history, but are scratching their heads over how it got there.

The 2,000 pounds of marijuana fills almost an entire room at the Muskogee detective's bureau.

It was found inside a semi tractor trailer in a hidden compartment, after the truck driver realized his 53-foot trailer was only 48-feet inside.

Muskogee Police say the trailer was stolen near El Paso, Texas back in March. They say whoever stole it, is probably the same one who built the fake compartment and stashed the pot.

The trailer was recovered before the smugglers could make their delivery.

Police say the marijuana has a street value of more than $3-million.
