Two Lettuce Farmers Arrested in Indiana on Marijuana Trafficking Charges

State Troopers in Indiana have discovered 260 pounds of hydroponic marijuana concealed in a load of fresh lettuce

The trooper spotted “several criminal indicators” during an inspection of the tractor-trailer.

The 260 pounds of marijuana is an estimated value of $1 million on the street.

The state troopers reported that the tractor-trailer, which was traveling eastbound, was halted for a routine commercial vehicle inspection when the drugs were discovered.

They said,

“A search of the trailer yielded 260 pounds of hydroponic marijuana concealed within the legitimate load of fresh lettuce,”

The cargo was being transported from Colorado to Florida.

The driver and co-driver were taken into custody and imprisoned in the Putnam County Jail.

Thirty-three-year-old, Jorge Blanco-Diaz from Miami, Florida and forty-year-old Adan Labanino Delacruz from Cutler Bay, Florida were charged with dealing marijuana.

The Putnam County Jail reported Sunday that both of the accused were released on Thursday, with bond set at $10,005 each.
