This 18-wheeler had from 600 to 1,000 pounds of marijuana aboard, but the driver fled on foot after a Texas State Trooper found the weed.

‚ÄčLaw enforcement authorities are searching for a man who fled on foot after a large amount of marijuana was found inside his truck.

A Texas State Trooper stopped to check on an 18-wheeler parked on the northbound side of Interstate 35 in Waco around 5:20 Thursday morning, reports Louis Ojeda Jr. at News Channel 25.
The trooper asked to search the truck, and the driver seems to have foolishly given consent. Between 600 and 1,000 pounds of marijuana were found in the trailer, according to Cpl. Charlie Morgan, spokesman for the Department of Public Safety.
Two people were taken into custody, but the driver, Jose Juan Gonzalez Jr., 26, of Laredo, Texas, fled on foot and the cops are currently looking for him.
