More than paper in this truck

There was more than just paper in a big rig on I-55.

Illinois State Police report finding a ton of pot hidden in a load of paper products.

And it probably wasn't a load of rolling paper.

Troopers say they stopped the tractor trailer for a safety inspection early yesterday morning.

That's when authorities say a trooper found a ton of the illegal weed.

The driver was being questioned but hasn't been formally charged.

Troopers estimate that load of pot is worth about 10 million bucks.
