San Bernardino - San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies have uncovered a multimillion-dollar haul of marijuana and other drugs in the back of a big rig.
The sheriff's department said Thursday that deputies pulled over a tractor-trailer for a traffic violation on Wednesday and noticed an overwhelming smell of marijuana.
They found the trailer was filled with large cardboard containers on pallets holding thousands of heat sealed packages of narcotics.
Investigators seized approximately 38,000 pounds of marijuana, 2,700 pounds of cocaine and 67 pounds of methamphetamine, valued at $45 million.
The driver, Fernando Luevano, was arrested and detained in lieu of $5 million bail.
