BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) - Authorities in Mississippi say a highway traffic stop turned up 181 pounds (82 kilograms) of marijuana worth about $1.2 million.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2rMiB8h ) narcotics agents with the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department arrested 26-year-old Danny Guzman after a deputy pulled him over Saturday on Interstate 10.

Sheriff’s Lt. Bill Covington said the drugs came from Laredo, Texas, and investigators suspect they were to be sold and distributed on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Guzman was charged with drug trafficking and was being held Monday in the Hancock County jail on a $75,000 bond. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
