Large Pot Bust Nets Prison Time

(LaPorte, IN) - Another major marijuana bust on the Indiana Toll Road has landed a man in prison.

23-year old Brett Brumfield was given a two year prison sentence Friday

in La Porte Circuit Court.

In September, police say he was stopped for tailgating at the 57 mile marker.

Police say Brumfield was acting very nervous.

A K-9 dog was brought out and helped uncover three bags of vacuum sealed

marijuana weighing 33 pounds from the car.

According to police, it appears Brumfield from Ohio picked up the marijuana in California.

Last month, very large amounts of marijuana were also seized during traffic stops on the

Toll Road in about that same area.

Those suspects are still awaiting trial.
