1,000 pounds of marijuana found in abandoned trailer [IN]

Police Discover $1M in Marijuana in Abandoned Trailer
August 9, 2005 - wishtv.com

Indiana state police say they found approximately 1,000 pounds of marijuana worth up to $1 million early Tuesday morning.

Police said the marijuana was discovered in a false compartment inside an abandoned semitrailer on a lot next to the Flying J truck stop at Interstate 465 and Harding Avenue at about 3 a.m.

Two troopers and a police dog thought something was strange about the semitrailer, which was not connected to a tractor.

The police dog alerted police that the trailer might contain drugs.

Police said the marijuana had been hidden in bundles in a 4 foot-deep storage area that spread across the width of the trailer.

Officials aren't sure who left the drugs inside the trailer and no arrests were made.

Troopers C. Todd Wix and William Etter made the startling pot find.

"Even though we weren't able to arrest anyone, it's very satisfying to know this marijuana won't end up on the streets of Indianapolis," Wix said. "It's going to ruin somebody's day, obviously."

Officers credited the dog, Max, with alerting them to the hidden drugs.

"The investment in Max by the Indiana State Police certainly was money well spent," Etter said.

Police said interstates and truck stops are typically a haven for drug transporters.

"There's lots of interstates going through Indianapolis ... It's pretty typical throughout the country that commercial motor vehicles transport large amounts of illegal narcotics," Etter said.
