Traffic Stop Leads to 143 lb. Drug Bust

Lonnie Morris, 37, of Potosi, Mo., was unlucky to have it be Topeka Police Drug Enforcement Officers who pulled him over Tuesday evening.

Mr. Morris was stopped at I-70 and Wanamaker when a drug detecting K-9 alerted officers took notice of the vehicle. The dog led officers straight to 143 lb. of marijuana, which Topeka police valued between $400 and $1,000 per pound.

He was arrested and booked into the Shawnee County Department of Corrections on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to sell.
