Two people are jailed following a huge seizure of marijuana in Butler County. Sgt. Monte Mayer said it is believed to be the largest in county history. Police confiscated 900 pounds of pot worth $1.1 million. Mayer says the bust happened Tuesday night.

The Sheriff's Department believes the shipment originated in Mexico.  The Butler County Undercover Regional Narcotics Taskforce intercepted the shipment and made a "controlled delivery" of the shipment to an empty storefront in 4700 of Industry Drive in Fairfield.
