Three men accused of using the interstate to move 400 pounds of marijuana were arrested on Wednesday morning. Authorities seized $600,000 worth of the drug in Oklahoma City.
The marijuana was in duffels bags individually wrapped, marked, shipped and transported to Yukon in a horse trailer. Investigators say the drugs were likely headed to Canadian County, courtesy of a Mexican cartel.
â€œIt is not uncommon to see cocaine, meth and marijuana in some of the same vehicles that are coming up,â€ said Oklahoma Bureau of Narcoticsâ€™ Mark Woodward.
Authorities also recovered $10,000 in cash and some metal boxes in a pickup truck. They plan to open the boxes next week after they're dusted for fingerprints.
