(Rolling Prairie, IN) - Another major marijuana bust has been made by

La Porte County Police.

near Rolling Prairie.

Pablo Cortina was arraigned Friday in LaPorte Circuit Court.

According to court documents, he was stopped for tailgating just over a

week ago.

Police say Cortina in his early 60’s appeared very nervous which led to a search

Over 30 pounds of marijuana inside two suitcases were allegedly recovered

from the trunk.

marijuana from Baltimore to California.
