Three people in Montana are facing felony charges for transporting Marijuana on Amtrak trains, in two separate instances.
Roosevelt county deputies were called to Amtrak in the Mondak area because they received an anonymous tip that there was a man on board with warrants for his arrest.
When the police arrived at the station to arrest the man, they also found at least two pounds of marijuana in his luggage. He was charged with two felonies, possession of marijuana, and possession of dangerous drugs aboard a train.
In a completely different case, Roosevelt County deputies were called again about a man and woman walking along the train tracks. The caller told police that the woman was bleeding and possibly jumped from the train.
When sheriffs arrived at the scene, an ambulance was called for the woman. The two were arrested for obstructing a peace officer.
The next day their luggage was searched and about 7 pounds of pot along with $1,000 in cash.
The couple was charged with felony drug possession with intent to sell, and transporting drugs on a train.
Since the happenings, Amtrak has been listed new security measures on their website. The site states that Identification checks, police dogs aboard, and random baggage and passenger inspections are now being introduced and may happen randomly.
