ST. MARTINVILLE, La. – Two Trinity residents were in jail in Louisiana last week in connection with more than half a ton of marijuana seized in St. Martin Parish.

Louisiana State Police pulled the truck over on Interstate 10 between Lafayette and Baton Rouge during a routine traffic stop.

Officers subsequently found 1,189 pounds of marijuana in the vehicle. The estimated street value was placed at about $1.1 million.

Both Ford and Cole were charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
