Marijuana Bust Turns Into Car and Foot Chase

More than 60 pounds of marijuana is found in four tires in the back of a truck. The major drug bust results from a routine traffic stop on I-20 this afternoon. After the attempted stop, an officer pursued the truck onto an access road into a dead end. From there, the men fled on foot into the woods. Other officers arrived with a canine and caught the two men a little more than a mile out.

Officers say the men did not have identification or a driver's license. The men claim they are from Louisiana.

The men have been charged with felony drug possession and fleeing officers.
