159 lbs of marijuana, four suitcases, and one police dog. It's Wednesday's recipe for one wild drug bust.

Metro Nashville Police dog Boston's probably getting a bone after he helped uncover the 159 lbs of marijuana at Nashville International Airport.

The suitcases full of weed flew to Music City from the Oakland International Airport out of California. Metro Police identified the owners of the suitcases as Trung Tieu, 40, of Philadelphia, and Tihn Tran, 56, of Murphy, Texas.

It's safe to say Tieu and Tran didn't make their Jacksonville International Airport connection, but took a trip to jail instead.
