Large Marijuana Seizure on Toll Road

Enough marijuana to fill a bunch of sandbags was seized by La Porte County Police during two separate traffic stops this week.


Two days ago, police say the vehicles were pulled over for traffic violations on the Indiana Toll Road near Rolling Prairie.


Most of the marijuana was found on 34-year-old Amanda Salmons of Ohio. Two hours later, Tshaka Brown of New York was found with marijuana. Police say a K-9 assisted in the largest bust.


How much the marijuana weighed was not disclosed, but a picture taken by police shows what looks like at least 30 garbage bags of pot stacked on top of each other.
