TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Nearly 175 pounds of marijuana was seized last month during a traffic stop in Florida, troopers said.

The FHP said the stop took place in May when a tractor-trailer car hauler was spotted driving dangerously and following a vehicle too closely on Interstate 75

A K-9 alerted troopers to the possible presence of drugs, and a search was conducted, the FHP said.

About 170 pounds of illegal marijuana, with a street value of more than $1.5 million, was found, the FHP said.

No other details have been released.
