Traffic stop leads to discovery of 455 pounds of pot in goat trailer

A Lockhart man is facing a felony charge of possession of Marijuana, after a routine traffic stop in Fayette County leads to the discovery of 455 pounds of pot.  Fayette County Sheriff's Lt. David Beyer said Deputy Randy Thumann became suspicious of 25-year-old Eric Luedke's story that he was taking four goats from the valley to Houston to sell them.  "A red flag came up right away on that, because someone who would buy four goats in the valley to take to them to Houston would probably not make a lot of money on them," Beyer said.

Deputy Thumann got permission to search the trailer and discovered a false floor.  Beyer said when Thumann pulled up a couple of planks, he saw bundles.  Luedke was arrested and the truck, trailer and goats were seized.

The trailer was taken to the sheriff's office, where the floor was removed revealing 91 bundles of marijuana, weighing 455 pounds.  Luedke is now charged with Felony Possession of Marijuana 50-2000 pounds.
