Police arrested a truck driver Monday along Interstate 71 in Oldham County after seizing nearly 1,600 pounds of marijuana from his tractor-trailer.
Sohrab F. Shamoil, 47, of Mesa, Ariz., was charged with careless driving and first-offense trafficking in marijuana over 5 pounds, a felony, according to a KSP news release.
“This is the largest marijuana seizure at one time at our post,” Detective Sgt. Vic Hubbuch said Tuesday. He said the street value of the pot is estimated at about $4 million.
