Missouri Deputies Seize Nearly $1M Worth of Marijuana
Sheriff's deputies in northwestern Missouri's Platte County say they've seized more than 200 pounds of marijuana from a van that led them on a chase.
The Kansas City Star reports that the incident happened Friday afternoon when a white van refused to pull over, despite a squad car's lights and sirens behind it.
Authorities say when the van finally pulled over, deputies searched it and found the marijuana, valued at $922,000.
41-year-old Paul Deliz of Mesquite, Texas, and 37-year-old Destiny Browning of Louisville, Kentucky, were arrested on suspicion of felony delivery of a controlled substance. Browning, who was driving, also faces traffic charges.
