A pair of suspects are now in custody after the seizure of 250 pounds of marijuana Monday morning. 

On the morning of May 8, around 4:30 a.m., detectives made a stop of a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado on Interstate 44 (I-44) near Sullivan, Mo. During the stop, the marijuana was uncovered after detectives found it being stored in a false compartment in the truck's toolbox. 

The sheriff's office said the street value of the marijuana is $250,000. 

The two suspects are a 42 year-old woman from Moscow Mills, Mo., and a 21 year-old undocumented man from Mexico.
