HAVRE -- A routine check of the passenger list on an Amtrak train led to two arrests at a stop in north-central Montana and the discovery of two duffel bags containing five pounds of marijuana.
Pete Federspiel with the Tri-Agency Drug Task Force says agents learned that Chaidon Kang and Sitha Puth were traveling from their homes in Tacoma, Wash., to Minneapolis, where Puth had an outstanding warrant.
The task force met the two when the train stopped in Havre on Friday and arrested Puth on a probation violation.
A drug-sniffing dog alerted to the compartment where Puth and Kang had been, and officers seized the duffel bags.
Both remained jailed on Tuesday on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and immigration charges.
