SUMMIT COUNTY -- Utah Highway Patrol troopers caught two people trying to take drugs through Utah on Interstate 80 Thursday.

Troopers made a traffic stop at milepost 167 near Echo and noticed the passengers acting suspicious. They brought in a dog, which sniffed out 351 pounds of marijuana in the trunk of the car.

Troopers arrested Neil and Kathleen Lindsay -- both of Peoria, Ill. -- who said they were coming from Las Vegas.
