A trucker who was stopped for speeding last week wound up being busted on federal drug charges.

Indiana State Police today said they arrested a California man on multiple drug charges Friday, May 7. At about 10 a.m., an Indiana State Trooper pulled over a tractor-trailer on Interstate 65 in Indianapolis for speeding. While speaking with the driver of the semi the trooper could smell the odor of marijuana coming from inside the truck.

The investigation led to the search of the semi and the discovery of about 162 pounds of methamphetamine and a small amount of marijuana. The driver, 27-year-old Dejohntae Williams of Victorville California, was arrested and is facing pending federal drug charges. 

The Indiana State Police was assisted in this investigation by the Department of Homeland Security Investigations and the United States Postal Inspectors.
