A State Trooper stopped a Chevy pickup in the construction zone west of the Howe/LaGrange exit.

A K9 unit with the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Office sniffed out suspected drugs. A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of 259 pounds of marijuana.

The driver, 28-year-old Carlos Silva Rivas and his passenger, 41-year-old Margarito Alvarez, both of Oregon, were both arrested. The two face charges of dealing marijuana and possession of marijuana.

Both were taken to the LaGrange County Jail.
