A routine traffic stop in Sequoyah County turned into a big pot bust for the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Troopers pulled over a truck in Sallisaw for speeding and found 610 pounds of marijuana hidden inside caskets in the back. Timothy Hynd and Robert Harper told the trooper they were delivering the caskets to an Atlanta company and didn't know marijuana was inside.

Both men face charges of possession with intent to distribute. They are free on bond.
