With the assistance of a sheriff’s K-9, Thor uncovered more than 50 pounds of marijuana, as well as other drugs and drug paraphernalia.

The driver, a 36-year-old Wisconsin man, was arrested and booked into the Summit County Jail on suspicion of several felony counts for possession and distribution of the drugs, as well as possession of paraphernalia.
