[article] MERIDIAN, Idaho (KBOI) - A Meridian man is charged with carrying 180 lbs. of marijuana on a small plane. Unitah County deputies arrested 56-year-old Randall Patrick Watson at Vernal Regional Airport in eastern Utah on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance with intent to distribute. Authorities in eastern Utah say they responded to the airport in Vernal, Utah about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday after receiving a tip from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Officials say a Naples police K-9 walked around the plane and indicated that there might be drugs inside. Officers say they obtained a search warrant and found four large duffle bags filled with compressed plastic packages of marijuana. Uintah County under sheriff John Laursen says authorities found nearly 200 pounds of the drug, which could see for about $436,000.
