MIDLAND COUNTY - A Florida man busted with pot a long way from home in Midland County.

42-year-old Jorge Rodriguez was driving down I-20 on the 4th of July when he was pulled over by a trooper.

The trooper pulled him over for having a beat down mud flap.

Rodriguez was extremely nervous so the trooper decided to search his tractor trailer.

He found two U-Haul boxes with 123 pounds of marijuana in them.

If convicted, Rodriguez could face up to two years in a federal prison.
