A K-9 officer alerted Jackson police to 125 pounds of marijuana in six boxes at a Jackson shipping business, JPD spokesman Sam Brown said Friday.

The drugs were located Thursday afternoon during a routine sweep of the unidentified business. Brown said the marijuana was found in vacuum-sealed bags somewhere inside the complex. No arrests have been made and the investigation is continuing on how the drugs ended up at the location.

Brown said JPD has an agreement with some companies throughout the city to perform routine drug searches.

JPD hasn’t determined a street value of the marijuana. It has been reported that a pound of high grade marijuana can sell for up to $2,000.
