MILWAUKEE (AP) — A suitcase packed with 45 pounds of marijuana passed through security at Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee County.

Sheriff David Clarke suspects it was “an inside job” because of the security breach. Clarke says it’s unnerving that such a bag can bypass all the TSA security devices.

Investigators aren’t saying exactly where the untagged suitcase was found, but they believe it was destined for a plane to New York.

This week’s discovery at the airport follows another large marijuana bust over the weekend in Milwaukee County. A deputy pulled over a driver on Interstate 43 and found a suitcase and duffel bag with 63 pounds of marijuana valued at more than $200,000.

    To be fair, TSA’s job isnt to look for drugs. But how does one miss 45lbs pounds of weed?!
