Highway 420 strikes again.

2016 has been a busy year for local law enforcement making all sorts of busts and the latest big bust in Texoma comes courtesy of the the Wichita County Sheriff's Department.

At around 6:30 pm yesterday, a Wichita County Deputy made a traffic stop on US-287 at Midway Church Road. The driver, 37-year-old Cuong Quoc Vuong, consented to a search of the vehicle which resulted in the discovery of 70 pounds of marijuana.

Vuong was taken into custody and charged with Possession of Marijuana over 50 pounds and under 2,000 pounds.

Ya know, I've lived in this area damn near all my life and I can't recall a period of time in which so many major busts were made. Of course, marijuana wasn't legal anywhere in the US for most of my life and now that it is legal in some states, it makes sense that we're seeing so many pot busts these days.
