Woman Boards Bus Carrying 40 Pounds Of Pot

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A California woman is in custody after police in Boise say they found 40 pounds of marijuana and a gram of methamphetamine on a passenger bus.

Fifty-four-year-old Lori E. Lovely is being held in the Ada County Jail on suspicion of trafficking in marijuana and possession of a controlled substance.

Police say they responded to a bus station in downtown Boise on Tuesday to investigate after employees reported smelling marijuana on a bus that had just arrived from Oregon.

A drug-detecting dog alerted on a bag in a storage area under the bus.

Police also found about a pound of marijuana wax that can be smoked using e-cigarettes.

Lovely remained in jail on Friday.
