Moore County Sheriff’s K9 unit and deputies confiscated $73,000 worth of drugs during a search of a Greyhound Bus on Tuesday, Chief Deputy Carmen Napp said.

The bus was traveling from Colorado to Dallas, and when it stopped in Dumas at about 5:30 p.m., Lucifer, the department’s K9, detected the drugs in the bus’ luggage area. A suitcase held 5,186 grams of THC extract and 5 pounds 3 ounces of hydro marijuana. THC is the chemical that causes the psychological effects of marijuana.

The name on the suitcase didn’t match any of the passengers. No arrests were made, and the sheriff’s department is working with Colorado authorities in the on-going investigation.
