Grand Bay, Ala. — Mobile County Sheriff Deputies stopped a California man traveling on I-10 on Tuesday morning with 146 pounds of high grade marijuana, worth an estimated $1.3 million.
According to WPMI, the U-Haul trailer that 29-year-old Kristopher H. Bass, from Chicago, was pulling sparked suspicion with deputies. Upon searching the pickup truck and trailer, deputies discovered the marijuana sealed in individual vacuum sealed bags inside of two hollowed out big screen television's. The individual bags were labeled with names like “Best Bud,” “Green Crack,” “Blackwater,” and more.
Bass was traveling from California to Florida with the massive load. He was arrested and charged with trafficking marijuana, reportedly making it one of the biggest busts in the region.
