30 pounds of marijuana found hidden in NJ pickup
RIDGEFIELD — A report of a suspicious pickup truck parked on a borough street led to the discovery of 30 pounds of marijuana that authorities say was hidden in a secret compartment installed in the vehicle.
The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office said the truck found Thursday didn't have any license plates attached to it and was registered in Oklahoma. It wasn't immediately known how long the truck may have been in the area.
A dog from the county sheriff's department K-9 unit conducted a search around the truck's exterior and soon indicated drugs were in the vehicle. Authorities obtained a search warrant, and the truck was towed to the prosecutor's office, where a subsequent search uncovered the secret compartment with the marijuana.
Authorities declined further comment Sunday, citing the ongoing investigation.
