San Antonio police confiscated 385 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop Wednesday, and they said it was being transported through the city with Austin as a possible destination.
Officers said the marijuana has a street value of about $145,000.
Salvaggio touted training on highway drug interdiction that officers received about two months ago from the Department of Public Safety. He said 60 officers, two from TRU, were trained in identifying certain "red flags" involved in transporting drugs.
Officers stopped him for minor traffic offenses, including not using his turn signal.
The arrested man faces felony drug charges, Salvaggio said, but his name could not be released until he was officially charged.
