The troopers became suspicious and a drug-sniffing dog alerted to something in the vehicle.

Troopers found two pounds of marijuana and eight Hydrocodone pills. Troopers say the drugs found have a street value of more than $10,000.

The driver, 40-year-old Thomas Hough of Monroe, Georgia, was arrested and taken to the Miami County jail on drug charges.

Troopers say I-75 is becoming an increasingly popular route to transport marijuana from Michigan to other states. Michigan legalized medical marijuana in 2008. Patients in Michigan may possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana and may grow up to 12 plants in a locked facility.
