On Tuesday, a man was arrested at the La Crosse, Wi. Amtrak train station with over 7 pounds of marijuana in his possession.
La Crosse authorities were first alerted when Amtrak police in Portland, Or. noticed a 25 year old man was acting suspicious on the train.
When the train arrived at his stop in La Crosse, a police narcotics dog found 7.4 pounds of marijuana in vacuum sealed bags in the man’s suitcases. Police estimate the marijuana from Oregon is worth approximately $30,000.
The man is being held in La Crosse County jail without bond. When he appears today in court, he will face charges of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
