Routine I-5 traffic stop yields more than 100 pounds of marijuana

Oregon State Police pulled over a swerving 2017 Chevy Impala on Interstate 5 near Cottage Grove and discovered more than 100 pounds of marijuana in the driver’s car, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court on Wednesday. The trooper immediately detected the smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle, the document states, and discovered 108 individually sealed one-pound bags of marijuana in bags in the trunk of the car, according to the complaint. In the back seat, a bag was found containing $40,000 in cash, concealed between sheets of lead, a tactic used by drug traffickers to keep X-ray machines from detecting currency, the complaint states.
