La Crosse, Wisconsin (WXOW) - A guilty plea for the man arrested with seven and a half pounds of marijuana seized on an Amtrak train.
25-year-old Rueben Dudenbostel was arrested as he left the train in February.
A Holmen K-9 Unit detected drugs in the duffel bag he was carrying.
The drugs have a street value of $30,000, Lt. Pat Hogan, La Crosse Police Department said.
Local authorities were acting on a tip from the Portland, Ore. Amtrak Police that Dudenbostel was acting suspicious and nervous as he boarded the train.
Dudenbostel was originally facing a felony charge of possession with intent to deliver 2,500 to 10,000 grams of marijuana but during a court appearance Wednesday, the charge was reduced to 200 to 1,000 grams.
Dudenbostel will be on probation for two years.
