The Florida Highway Patrol in Orlando is praising the efforts (sniffing and other-wise) of one of their K-9 officers who helped to make a huge drug bust.

FHP Orlando says that their officer “K-9 Piet”,  alerted troopers to a whopping 624 pounds of marijuana that were being smuggled in the back of a U-Haul truck in Orlando. They released the following tweet about the bust:

According to the FHP, the street value of the marijuana is $5.6 million. Officials say both the driver and passenger were arrested on Tuesday night.

I hope K-9 Piet got some yummy treats for his excellent work!
