Court records say 34-year-old Darrel Wait, of Thornton, Colorado, is charged with two counts of possession of a controlled drug and with other crimes. Wait’s attorney didn’t immediately return a call Thursday from The Associated Press.

Authorities say a Woodbury County sheriff’s deputy made a traffic stop on Wait’s vehicle last Sunday.

A police drug dog taken to the scene alerted officers to the likelihood that drugs were in the vehicle.

    lol 77 lbs of pot does not have a “street value” of $450K. As if. Lbs of pot go for about $1500 for indoor, less for outdoor. At best the value of the pot is $115K. If the cops would stop lying about the actual value of confiscated drugs to inflate their claims (and hence use it to demand more budget $) it would be nice. Instead they want to be known as desperate liars? Bizarre. Way to undermine yourselves in the public trust.
