Man Arrested After 40 Pounds of Marijuana Found

Posted:

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - Maryland State Police say they found 40 pounds of marijuana in a man's minivan troopers pulled over on Interstate 70.

Police say the van, driven by 52-year-old Stewart Deerr of Gregory, Mich., had a malfunctioning headlight. Troopers say the man was nervous in talking to the officer after he was pulled over on Thursday. The officer called for a police dog to scan the vehicle.

After the dog alerted and a search was performed, officers say the trooper found 39 bricks of marijuana in a drum case in the back of the minivan. Police say cocaine was also found in the vehicle.

Deerr has been charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and cocaine and other offenses.
