PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Two I-5 traffic stops netted a total of 13 pounds of marijuana Monday.
In both cases, the vehicles had out-of-state license plates, and police said the total value of drugs seized was roughly $30,000.
Just after 6:00 p.m., Oregon State Police troopers stopped a 21-year-old woman driving an SUV with California licence plates, and discovered four pounds of marijuana in the trunk, worth an estimated $10,000 in the vehicle.
Her passenger, 48-year-old Hollywood, Calif. man Jordan Perry , was arrested on possession charges. The driver, who was pulled over near I-5 milepost 119, was not charged.
Later that night, at another traffic stop just one mile down the road (I-5 mile post 120), police stopped a pickup truck with Minnesota license plates and found 9.5 pounds of marijuana concealed in the vehicle.
Police said the drugs carry an estimated value of $20,000.
The driver, 45-year-old Rogers, Minnesota, woman Teresa Lemons, was cited for unlawful possession and delivery of a controlled substance.
