Montana Highway Patrol troopers found 115 pounds of marijuana in a vehicle near Park City after pulling the car over for a traffic stop.

The incident occurred at mile marker 420 of Interstate 90, Undersheriff Chip Kem said in a press release.

According to Kem, the trooper “developed suspicions that the vehicle contained illegal drugs” during the stop and called the Stillwater County Sheriff’s Department K-9 deputy.

The dog alerted officers to the presence of drugs, the car was impounded and a search warrant was obtained.

The search yielded 102 vacuum-packed bundles of marijuana weighing 115 pounds, Kem said.

The driver and passenger, Rick, 37, and Dawn Voight, 41, both of California, have been charged in Stillwater County District Court with possession of dangerous drugs with intent to distribute, Kem said.

They are being held in the Yellowstone County Detention Facility on $75,000 bond each.
