Florida Ag Inspector Nets 200 Pounds of Pot in ‘Empty’ Truck
A Miami trucker, Ezrah Morrison, was arrested over the weekend for transporting more than 200 pounds of marijuana in Columbia County, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services announced.
Morrison was at the Agriculture Inspection Station on Highway 41 when Officer Andrew Stalvey found four cardboard boxes inside a vehicle in which the bill of lading indicated the semi-trailer was empty, according to the state agency.
Upon inspecting the boxes -- after Morrison couldn’t produce a bill of lading for the boxes -- Stalvey found 203.5 pounds of cannabis that were wrapped in 20 individual packages, the state reported.
Booked into Columbia County Jail, Morrison was charged with trafficking in cannabis over 25 lbs and use of a commercial vehicle in the commission of a felony.
