Police dogs in the far south suburbs sniffed out $2.5 million in marijuana before it hits the streets. Officers found the drugs at a freight terminal on Lincoln Highway in Sauk Village. They say a trailer was giving off a marijuana odor.

Police dogs were brought in --- and they found 505 pounds of the drug inside. The marijuana was wrapped in plastic and coffee grounds to throw off the dogs' scent.

Police say the trailer was a shipment from Arizona.

There have been no arrests in the case.
