JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) -- A traffic stop on Interstate 94 in southeastern North Dakota ended with officers seizing nearly 200 pounds of marijuana.
Stutsman County Sheriff's Sgt. Matt Thom stopped a van Monday about 9 miles east of Jamestown and smelled marijuana. A search turned up 198 pounds of the drug and nearly $5,000 in cash.
