Marshfield marijuana bust one of largest ever

MARSHFIELD, Wis. (AP) -- The Marshfield Police Department says its seizure of more than 11 pounds of marijuana following an undercover operation may the largest ever for the community.

Two people were arrested Tuesday night following nearly simultaneous traffic stops in the town of Rock. Neither person has been formally charged.

Marshfield Police Lt. Rick Grazma told News-Herald Media in a story published Friday that the investigation had been ongoing for a couple months. He says both suspects had sold large quantities of marijuana to undercover officers in the past, and the department had received information they would be transporting a large quantity to central Wisconsin.

Grazma says it's the largest drug confiscation he's seen in his 17-year career with the Marshfield Police Department.
