(2/6/13) Police in La Crosse said they were ready when a man left an Amtrak train with almost 30-thousand dollars' worth of marijuana.

25-year-old Reuben Dudenbostel of Boscobel is due in court today on a possible charge of possessing marijuana with the intent to deliver. Authorities said the man was acting suspiciously when he boarded the Amtrak train in Portland Oregon – and police there alerted authorities in La Crosse. Officials said that when Dudenbostel got off the train yesterday, a drug-sniffing dog from Holmen found almost seven-and-a-half pounds of pot in the man's bags. He was taken to jail. Online court records did not list any charges early this morning. They showed that Dudenbostel has two previous convictions in Grant County for possessing marijuana.
