Drug charges have been dropped in La Crosse County against a second truck driver accused of hauling marijuana along with his tomatoes. Gurmit Singh and Marco Corzo, both of Palmdale, Calif., have been cleared of being party to possessing marijuana with intent to deliver.

Prosecutors this week dropped charges against Singh after Corzo was earlier found not guilty by a La Crosse County jury. Singh was scheduled to stand trial later this month.

A State Patrol trooper says nearly a-half ton of marijuana was found among tomatoes in Singh's trailer after he pulled into an interstate weigh station last November near West Salem.

Both men claimed they didn't know there was marijuana in the truck.
