CREATED Jun 4, 2014
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Metro Police arrested a Washington man Tuesday afternoon for hauling more than 60 pounds of high grade marijuana into Nashville.

An officer stopped Daniel Lee Barton on I-24 near Joelton for following too closely.

A police dog, Caine, sniffed Barton’s vehicle and picked up on the smell of the drugs. The marijuana, valued at more than $180,000, was found in the trunk of Barton’s rental Nissan Altima.

Barton, from Yakima, Washington, was held in lieu of $76,000 bond.
