A 29-year old Tucson man is under arrest after 257 pounds of marijuana was found in the trunk of his car. Robert Volpe was pulled over for tailgating on I-10 in Cochise County on Monday, August 11, and when the DPS officer noticed indications of criminal activity, his canine partner was brought in to sniff the vehicle, leading to the discovery of the drugs.

Volpe faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted, and his 1998 Oldsmobile 4 door was seized.
