JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - A traffic stop on Interstate 94 in southeastern North Dakota ended with officers seizing nearly 200 pounds of marijuana.
KQDJ radio reports that Stutsman County Sheriff's Sgt. Matt Thom stopped a van Monday about 9 miles east of Jamestown, and smelled marijuana. A search turned up 198 pounds of the drug and nearly $5,000 in cash.
Thirty-one-year-old Mae Thao (tow), from St. Paul, Minnesota, and 30-year-old Xang (zang) Thao, of Redding, California, face drug charges. Court documents don't list attorneys for them.
Sheriff Chad Kaiser says the bust likely was the largest in county history.
