More Than Melons

Last week, agents stopped a semi on I-75 hauling a load of melons in Central Florida. Problem was the trucker was hauling more than just melons. Department of Transportation agents found a poorly hidden load of marijuana behind a load of cantaloupes, making for one of the biggest drug busts of the year in the state.


The marijuana was valued at $1 million, weighing in at more than 800 pounds. Officers arrested the driver, Richard Coulton, who claimed he had no idea how the marijuana got into the truck.
