Kevin Hartka, 30, may have come to Oregon for a vacation; but he won't be going home to Wyoming as planned. OSP Lieutenant Gregg Hastings says Hartka got in trouble during a stop outside Burns. “We discovered and seized 95 pounds of marijuana that was stuffed inside several duffle bags and some of the marijuana was stuffed inside a kayak which was being hauled inside.” The bags of dope are valued at $380,000.
