Cops bust Amtrak passenger in Grand Forks, seize $44,000 in pot
Authorities arrested Andrew Sorenson, 22, Portland.
According to a news release from Sheriff Bob Rost, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol informed his office that agents had information about a suspicious passenger who had boarded the train in Portland.
Sheriff's deputies took a K-9 dog to search the eastbound train during its stop just west of Grand Forks. The dog alerted on two pieces of luggage.
Sorenson consented to a search and deputies found 7.5 pounds of hydroponically grown pot worth an estimated $44,000 on the street, according to Rost.
