FARGO, N.D. — West Fargo police say officers seized more than $700,000 worth of marijuana from a vehicle during a traffic stop.

Police say officers found the marijuana Sunday after a drug-sniffing dog looked around the vehicle during the stop on Interstate 94. WDAY-TV reports the drug bust is the largest in the police department’s history.

Officers say that inside the car they found 125 pounds of raw marijuana, more than 168 grams of hashish, two vials of marijuana oil, and more than 2,800 grams of marijuana wax.

Police identified the driver they arrested as Hans Wagner and say he had a California driver’s license. Police say he faces a felony charge of delivery of marijuana.
