LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - Police in La Crosse said they were ready when a man left an Amtrak train with almost $30,000 worth of marijuana.
25-year-old Reuben Dudenbostel of Boscobel is due in court Wednesday on a possible charge of possessing marijuana with the intent to deliver.
Authorities said the man was acting suspiciously when he boarded the Amtrak train in Portland Oregon – and police there alerted authorities in La Crosse.
Officials said that when Dudenbostel got off the train Tuesday, a drug-sniffing dog from Holmen found almost 7.5 pounds of pot in the man’s bags. He was taken to jail.
Online court records did not list any charges early Wednesday morning. They showed that Dudenbostel has two previous convictions in Grant County for possessing marijuana.
