ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- A Florida Highway Patrol trooper found something no dog should ever eat inside of a dog food bag Wednesday -- around 30 pounds of marijuana.
The bag was found inside a truck on Interstate 95 around 10 a.m. in St. Johns County.
After stopping the Ford pickup truck for having illegally tinted windows, the trooper became suspicious and asked to search the vehicle. The driver, Roger Aguilera, consented.
During the search, the trooper smelled marijuana and noticed a large box in the rear passenger compartment. Inside the box was a large dog food bag containing 30-1.1 pound bricks of high-grade marijuana, according to FHP.
The stash carries an estimated value of $120,000.
Aguilera, 44, admitted to transporting the marijuana from Miami to Jacksonville to make money, according to FHP.
Aguilera was transferred to St. Johns County Jail and charged with trafficking, and possession of marijuana over 20 grams with intent to sell.
