The Morton County Sheriff’s Department found over 200 pounds of illegal drugs worth $1.1 million during a routine traffic stop Sunday morning.

The two men from Washington and Oregon were pulled over for a routine traffic stop, according to Morton County Sheriff’s Department.
When asked why they were traveling through the state, the driver indicated they were ‘transporting fan gear to the Super Bowl in Minneapolis.’

The officers said they asked to search the vehicle when the men exhibited suspicious behavior. That request was denied.

The officer then had a K9 conduct a sniff around the vehicle which positively alerted drugs.
In the car $2,400 worth of cash was found and large boxes with heat-sealed bags.

Law enforcement say after receiving a search warrant, 210 pounds of raw marijuana, five pounds of THC wax/shatter and 8 grams of meth were found.
The drugs are estimated to be worth $1.1 million at street value.

The father and son were arrested and are being held for charges.
