Indiana state troopers found a large load of marijuana during a traffic stop on the state toll road in Laporte County. Police released photos of themselves confiscating the nearly 300 pounds of marijuana after pulling over a pickup driver Monday night.

Investigators say David Earl Bell Jr. of Sun City, Arizona, acted nervous and suspicious during the traffic stop but did consent to a vehicle search.

Balls of cellophane-wrapped marijuana were found in suitcases and in a toolbox.

Bell was taken into custody and is awaiting a hearing.
