A Donna truck driver has been indicted in the state of Illinois for transporting over 1,000 kilos of marijuana.
The affidavit states that 29 year-old Jose Hernandez was initially pulled over by Illinois state police for improper lane change in the big rig. A few red flags prompted officers to conduct an open air search with a drug dog, the K-9 alerted troopers to drugs in the truck. Hernandez gave verbal consent for the troopers to search the truck and officers found 3,600 pounds of compressed marijuana.
The street value of the drug totaled at $3.6 million dollars and Hernandez is expected to have federal charges filed against him.
