Traffic Stop in Corsicana Areas Leads to $2.5M of Marijuana

Nearly 200 Pounds of Marijuana Seized in Traffic Stop

Police say a North Texas traffic stop has led to the seizure of about 185 pounds of marijuana with a street value of $2.5 million.

Corsicana police arrested two men in the investigation that began with a stop on a highway near the city limits.

Police Chief Randy Bratton says nearly 100 pounds of marijuana was found in a vehicle during Monday's stop and the driver was arrested. That led to a search warrant executed at a Corsicana home, where 87 pounds of marijuana was confiscated and another man arrested.

Bratton says both suspects were on parole for drug offenses. They now face more smuggling-related counts.

Bratton says the case involves high-grade marijuana that likely was being smuggled from Mexico.
