The Missouri State Highway Patrol says it has made two large seizures of illicit drugs during two separate traffic stops.

The busts happened over the last two days.

The patrol says it seized 11,744 THC vape cartridges, 50 packages of THC gummies, and 68 grams of plant material during a traffic stop in southwest Missouri.

A second traffic stop in central Missouri turned up 247 pounds of marijuana. Troopers say the marijuana was found in vacuum sealed bags in multiple duffel bags.

More hot and humid weather on the way for today with highs back in the upper 90s with some areas reaching triple digits. Use caution when spending time outside because heat index values will once again be in the triple digits for many. A cold front will start to approach our area tonight and stall to our north giving us a few chances for showers and thunderstorms overnight, however this activity will not be widespread. Temperatures will still be above average this weekend with highs in the 90s. A few lingering rain chances will continue this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry. The cold front will move through the area early next week giving us some much cooler temperatures. High will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
