“For our agency, we typically do not arrest for marijuana, as most of the time it’s in a misdemeanor amount less than 4oz. This was just slightly more than we are comfortable just issuing a drug paraphernalia for,” said the police on their Facebook.

The suspect was transported to Hill County Jail and charged with Delivery of Marijuana over 5lbs and less than 50lbs.

Its estimated the street value of around $50,000 to $60,000 based on where it came from in Oklahoma to where it was heading in Central Texas.
