A California man has been arrested in connection with a drug bust on I-80 near Salt Lake City.
The Utah Highway Patrol said a trooper stopped an eastbound vehicle Monday night for improper signal. The trooper found inconsistencies in the man's story, the UHP said, and deployed a police dog to investigate. The dog indicated the presence of drugs and a search revealed 17 pounds of marijuana, six ounces of hash and $1,000 cash, troopers said.
The man, 34, was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of drug offenses.
