Deputies seized about half a million dollars worth of high-grade marijuana during a traffic stop on I-10 on Friday.

The Mobile County Sheriff’s Office pulled over a driver at around 11:00 a.m. who was traveling to Miami in a rental car. 

Investigators say the 26-year-old from Colorado will be charged with trafficking marijuana, but they have not yet released his name.

The sheriff’s office says it recovered 110 pounds of the high-grade pot. Each pound is valued at $4,500. A pound of regular marijuana is valued at closer to $300-$400.

During the traffic stop, deputies say they also seized about 1,200 of THC vape juice.
