Fort Peck Tribes help locate couple later found with marijuana





Officers from the Fort Peck Tribes of Montana helped locate a couple who were later found to be carrying seven pounds of marijuana.

Amberly Dobbins and Morris Hayden were seen walking along train tracks on the reservation. Dobbins was in need of medical attention and was taken to a hospital while Hayden was jailed for resisting arrest.

Authorities in Roosevelt County eventually found drugs in the couple's baggage. It appears they jumped from an Amtrak train with the marijuana and $1,145 in cash.
