The complaint says a K-9 unit located the pot hidden in trash bags in the bed of the truck.

Another man, Omar Acosta, was busted for selling pot after a Bernalillo County deputy pulled him over for an illegal U-turn on Central Avenue.

A criminal complaint says the deputy could smell the marijuana in Acosta's car. The deputy said he could also see previews of text messages coming in on Acosta's phone asking to buy.
