When cops went to his car, they say Yates was acting suspiciously, and a drug-sniffing dog confirmed that the Christmas packages in the back of his SUV were not toys for tots.
The packages contained lots of marijuana, according to authorities. The total estimated by officers was $330,000 worth of marijuana in the form of pills, hash wax oil, and traditional weed.
Troopers say they "observed criminal indicators" and a Patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle. During a search of the vehicle, troopers say they found 10 gift-wrapped boxes containing about 71 pounds of marijuana, 360 THC pills and a pound of hash oil wax.
