Two men from Tennessee are now in the Saline County Jail after deputies found marijuana hidden in their vehicle.
Sheriff Glen Kochanowski says a deputy clocked a Land Rover traveling eastbound at 87-mph as it passed his patrol unit on Interstate-70 just before 3am Saturday morning.
The officer stopped the vehicle and then noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the SUV.
A search led to the discovery of 1.23 pounds of pot packaged and hidden in various areas of the vehicle.
The Sheriff’s Office says the estimated street value of the drugs is approximately $6,000 to $8,000.
Zain Yunus, 24 of Memphis, TN and Walter Record, 25 of Germantown, TN are both facing charges of marijuana possession and distribution.
The SUV was stopped and searched on I-70 at mile post #261.
