MOORHEAD, Minn. (Valley News Live) - Moorhead Police say on Wednesday, November 17th, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office and the Minnesota State Patrol stopped a vehicle on I-94 after they received some information that two men from Moorhead have been transporting dangerous and illegal drugs from Minneapolis to Moorhead.

Deputies say during a search of the vehicle, officers found 15 small bags containing 343 pills, each pill marked with “M30″.
