Major Pot Bust In La Salle

Posted by wlpo on March 16, 2011

If you’re driving around with over 400 pounds of marijuana, probably best to drive the speed limit.

A state trooper says he pulled over Oris Hunter and Leonard Thompson of Massachusetts Tuesday morning for speeding.  The Peru K-9 was called to the scene on Interstate 80 in La Salle and allegedly led police to find 17 packages of marijuana.  The total weight of the marijuana is 437 pounds.

Both Hunter and Thompson were taken to the county jail.
