CariWorldNews, RUSSELLVILLE, Ark., Tues. May 26, 2009: A Barbados-born, Michigan-based man has been nabbed with 325 pounds of marijuana inside of his tractor trailer.

Arkansas State Police troopers found the ganja inside the tractor trailer of Haldon E. Gilkes, 39, after he acted nervous and failed to provided proper paperwork during a traffic stop.

Troopers say they found the drugs, worth about $520,000, hidden behind the first row of pallets in the trailer.
