AMARILLO, Texas -

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) seized 142 pounds of marijuana Tuesday, after a Texas Highway Patrol Trooper stopped a vehicle in Wheeler County. 

At approximately 1:32 a.m., a DPS Trooper stopped a 2018 Chrysler 300 traveling east on I-40 near Shamrock for a traffic violation. A DPS canine arrived on scene and alerted on the vehicle. The Trooper then discovered multiple plastic-wrapped packages of marijuana in large bags in the trunk and back seat.

The driver, Girard Giorgio, 26, was arrested and charged with felony possession of marijuana. Giorgio was transported and booked into the Wheeler County Jail.

The drugs allegedly were being transported from Las Vegas, Nevada to Nashville, Tennessee.
