CANADIAN COUNTY, Oklahoma -

Deputies with the Canadian County Sheriff's Office seized 100 pounds of high quality marijuana on Friday, February 21 during a traffic stop.

Deputies pulled over the driver of a semi-truck after he was seen swerving and then veered off of eastbound Interstate 40 near the 123 mile marker in Canadian County.

The Canadian County Sheriff's Office say the 2014 Peterbuilt car-hauler was being driven from California to various locations across the country to deliver its load of vehicles. However, deputies became curious about one of the vehicles, a 1988 Chevy S10 Blazer which was being shipped from Sacramento, California to Macon, Georgia.

Once the deputies got the okay to search the vehicle from the driver, they discovered 50 individual packages of "Hydro" marijuana located in the vehicle with a $500,000 street value.

The 50 packages had a combined total weight of 100 pounds and were retrieved from hidden compartments scattered about the interior of the 1988 Blazer. In addition to the various hidden compartments, the packages had been double packed and were secured in place with and expanding spray foam that secured the packages in place once it had dried.

"Hydro", short for Hydroponics is a type of marijuana grown in sophisticated water and mineral systems, rather than a traditional soil growing method.

After determining the driver was unaware of the hidden load, he was released along with the semi to continue on his way.
