A Missouri man is behind bars after a big drug bust in Pittsburg County.

McAlester Police stopped a car for speeding on US Highway 69 Thursday. They say the driver, 21-year-old Matthew Maddox was acting suspicious, and so they called in a K9 unit.

The dog found two large bags in the trunk, containing 205 pounds of marijuana valued at more than $200,000.
