Marijuana in Car Tires

Arturo G. Deleon Jr. of Ben Wheeler, Texas was stopped northbound on I-65 in Warren County for weaving and driving too slow.

After a consent to search the vehicle a K-9 unit was attracted to the vehicle's tires.

Deleon told officers there was "grass" in the tires.

Each tire held about 20 pounds of marijuana in metal canisters welded to reams inside the tires.

Police seized a total of 80 pounds of marijuana with a street value of $136,000 dollars and Deleon's 1995 Chevy Suburban.

He is charged with trafficking in marijuana over five pounds and is lodged in the Warren County Regional Jail.
