Traffic Stop Leads to Drug Bust

In Jim Wells County, authorities make a major marijuana bust just north of Alice Saturday morning. Sheriff's deputies arrested 27-year old Jose Carrion and 28-year old Jessica Montalvo from San Antonio. The bust comes after an officer stopped a gray Ford f-150 pick-up truck on US Highway 281. After a search of the truck, the deputy found about 350 pounds of marijuana in a tool box. The marijuana has a street value of about 170-thousand dollars. The duo was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, which is a 2nd degree felony. Child Protective Services was also called in because they had their one year old child with them.
