The effort is called the State Patrol Highway Criminal Interdiction program, and it trains officers to look beyond a basic traffic stop to find criminal activity.

During the end of March, State Patrol discovered five drug transports all within a week that stemmed from a regular traffic stop.

Some of the busts included a semi hauling more than 230 pounds of Marijuana another vehicle had Cocaine.

The superintendent of State Patrol says their officers have to be prepared for anything.

State Patrol says they see most of the drugs heading in the westbound lanes towards Minneapolis and the money on the eastbound lanes.
