One Arrested in Interstate 40 Traffic Stop For Transporting Hefty Amount of Marijuana

Texas DPS

A traffic stop earlier this week in the Texas Panhandle resulted in the seizure of more than $572,000 of marijuana and hashish.

A Texas DPS trooper conducted a traffic stop just after 2 p.m. Tuesday along I-40 on a 2013 Ford Fusion for a traffic violation.

The stop was made near Conway in Carson County.

A search of the vehicle yielded more than five pounds of hashish valued at more than $40,000 and 125 pounds of marijuana valued at more than $532,000.

The narcotics were found in 101 vacuum-sealed bundles in the trunk of the vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle, 61-year-old Michael Lee Waters of Jacksonville, Florida, was placed under arrest.

Waters was booked into the Carson County Jail and faces first degree felony charges of possession of a controlled substance. The drugs were allegedly being transported from Anderson, California to Savannah, Georgia.

Three others were arrested last month in traffic stops along I-40 for possession of sizable amounts of illegal drugs.
