One movable injury was enough to knock an Indiana State Police driver over, and a K-9 officer’s nose was enough to finger the van to carry 578.3 kilograms of weed that smugglers could barely get tried to hide.

According to a police statement, a soldier stopped a vehicle at around 11:15 a.m. on March 16 for a driving violation while traveling on I-65.

The investigation into which a dog was called in to sniff the exterior of the van resulted in a search of the interior of the vehicle. There the soldier discovered 38 large boxes wrapped in black plastic and six black garbage bags.

The boxes contained a total of 1,264 individually sealed bags of green plant material that were field tested and found the contents to be marijuana.

The total weight of the seized cannabis was 578.3 kg, which, according to the police report, has a “conservative” street value of approximately 5.7 to 8.5 million US dollars (7.1 to 10.6 million US dollars).

California-based Christopher Colburn, 31, was arrested without incident and later taken to the Lake County Jail. Colburn is currently charged with two criminal offenses, trafficking in marijuana and possession of marijuana with prior conviction. If pursued, the actual fees will be determined by the Lake County Attorney’s Office.
