Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - Moorhead Police have seized one pound of medicinal marijuana, making that their third medical pot seizure within a month.

Twenty-five year old Korey Okke was arrested last Friday. He has since posted bail.

Police seized the marijuana, along with two loaded firearms and packaging for over 100 pounds of marijuana.

Moorhead Police made their largest seizure, 32 pounds of medical pot, in Dilworth in March. With another seizure last week, the total has come to 38 pounds.

Lt. Tory Jacobson, Moorhead Police Department: "States that have legal growing of marijuana certainly is coming into this area. It's affecting this area, there's certainly a market, and there's money to be made in it."

The marijuana in all three seizures was from California, where growers are licensed. Some of those growers are growing more than they are supposed to and distributing it illegally.
