CLINTON, Conn. (WTNH) — After stopping a vehicle for reckless driving, police arrested one man and seized nine and a half pounds of marijuana on Interstate 95 Sunday.
Police say an odor similar to marijuana was detected coming from inside his vehicle, which prompted a search of Jones’ vehicle. The arresting trooper found two small baggies of the substance and a loose quantity inside the vehicle’s ash tray.
Authorities then searched the trunk of the car. Officials say nine large clear plastic heat-sealed bags inside a large blue cloth bag was found in the trunk.
State police say more nine and a half pounds of marijuana were located inside Jones’ vehicle.
Jones was placed under arrest and was charged with reckless driving, possession with intent to sell and possession of a controlled substance.
He is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 5.
