Indiana State Police arrested the drivers of a tractor-trailer load full of fresh lettuce en route from Colorado to Florida on Wednesday morning.

The truck was stopped for a routine commercial vehicle inspection near Cloverdale, Ind., the morning of August 8, when “several criminal indicators” aroused the state trooper’s suspicion, according to a news release.

A search of the trailer revealed 260 pounds of marijuana concealed among the fresh lettuce, with an estimated street value of $1 million.
