Jackpot: Huge Marijuana Bust Near Conroe

What started as a routine traffic stop south of Conroe turned into something much more for Montgomery County authorities.

Daniel Torres, 39, was pulled over on I-45 near Highway 242 Tuesday. When authorities searched his vehicle, they found 1,200 pounds worth of marijuana in his van.

Torres, who is from Glen Flore, now faces first-degree felony charges of possession with intent to deliver.

The Drug Enforcement Agency will assist in the follow-up due to the size of the seizure.
