The Western Colorado Drug Task Force says it got 75 pounds of pot off the street in a bust at the Greyhound Bus Station.

Officers say 34–year–old Carlos Hernandez–Barajas was smuggling the drugs in his suitcase.

The task force reported finding the marijuana in a routine drug and weapon sweep at the bus station last week.

They say the drugs are worth $75,000 on the street.

Hernandez–Barajas is being held in the Mesa County Jail on a $10,000 bond and an immigration hold.
