FORT STOCKTON - Authorities have arrested a Kansas man after finding more than 200 pounds of marijuana in his vehicle, just south of Fort Stockton.

The big bundle of marijuana was found inside an SUV.

A Fort Stockton Border Patrol Agent pulled over the Toyota 4 runner last week on Highway 285 after it appeared to be overloaded, and the driver looked nervous.

The agent discovered more than 200 pounds of pot inside, worth $250,000 on the street.

The driver, a 37-year-old man from Kansas, was arrested.

No word yet on any charges.
