Traffic Stop Yields a Lot More Than Heads of Lettuce

A routine traffic stop and truck inspection by a Houston police officer last Sunday night of an 18-wheeler supposedly carrying just a load of lettuce resulted in a large drug bust with nearly one ton of marijuana on board.

The seizure of 1,995 pounds of marijuana led to the arrest of the truck's driver and lone occupant.

The seized marijuana was packed in numerous bundles and has an estimated street value of $3.1 million dollars.

Other boxes on the truck were filled with lettuce (street value, twenty-one bucks or so...)

Forrest Gump said it best, "you never know what your gonna get..."
