    OELWEIN, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a load of marijuana has been discovered on a train car passing through Oelwein in northeast Iowa.

    The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that 61 pounds of pot bundled in 45 packages was discovered Friday.

    Oelwein police estimate the street value of the pot at $90,000.

    Police Chief Jeremy Logan says he doesn’t believe the marijuana was headed for Oelwein.

    The marijuana was discovered by railroad workers when the railcar was diverted for repairs.
