SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) _ A truck driver from Indiana is under arrest after Missouri state troopers reported finding slightly more than 700 pounds of marijuana in his rig.

The Highway Patrol says officers stopped the eastbound tractor-trailer for a commercial vehicle compliance check Thursday morning on Interstate 44 near Springfield.

Authorities said the troopers noticed something suspicious and asked if they could search the rig. They found the bundles of marijuana inside the trailer.

The 60-year-old driver, from Indianapolis, was arrested on suspicion of drug trafficking and taken to the Greene County sheriff’s office in Springfield.
