A routine traffic stop turned into a hefty drug bust earlier this week when Warren County deputies seized 425 pounds (!) of marijuana from a vehicle traveling on I-71.

Apparently two men in a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica were pulled over around 2 a.m. on Tuesday for some minor traffic offense, but were later arrested when officers discovered what they were toting.

Both men were charged with felony drug trafficking, drug abuse and possession of criminal tools. They are being held on $331,200 bond.
