Speeding Ticket Turns Into Arrest For 179 Pounds Of Weed


If we've said it once, we've said it a thousand times, if you've got a little something illegal in the car, you shouldn't speed.

It appears that 25-year-old guy Manuel Torres from Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, Canada never heard about that piece of advice. He was pulled over last week for speeding in his minivan in Queensbury, New York. When the cop came up to the car, he thought he smelled some weed.

So when he searched the vehicle, he found 179 pounds of marijuana in a bunch of duffel bags. Manuel was arrested on two felony counts, for criminal possession of marijuana and conspiracy.
