Marijuana weighing 181 pounds and worth more than $1.2 million was seized after a traffic stop on Interstate 10 in Hancock County over the weekend, The Sun Herald reports.

The marijuana likely was bound for Biloxi, said Lt. Bill Covington, assistant commander of the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department’s Narcotics Division. Narcotics agents with the sheriff’s department arrested Danny Guzman, 26, of Laredo, Texas, after a deputy pulled him over.

“We are always happy to intercept large shipments of illegal drugs moving through Hancock County,” Sheriff Ricky Adam said in a written statement.
