MONTAGUE COUNTY, TX (RNN Texoma) - The Montague County Sheriff's Office celebrated a large marijuana bust on Friday.

A deputy conducted a traffic stop on a motorhome on U.S. 81. During the stop, the deputy believed the vehicle may be transporting illegal goods.

According to the office's Facebook page, the driver denied consent to search so K9 Ace was brought out to perform an open-air sniff.

The dog alerted on the vehicle and a probable cause search was done. Deputies found 400 pounds of marijuana, nearly four pounds or marijuana wax and more than 400 grams of THC oil.

The two occupants of the vehicle were arrested on felony drug charges and taken to jail. The bust was posted on the Montague Co. Sheriff's Office Facebook page.
