An Oregon State Police (OSP) traffic stop early Wednesday morning south of Wilsonville led to the arrest of a Washington man after the trooper found over 14 pounds of marijuana inside the man's car. The OSP Drug Enforcement Section is continuing the investigation.
On January 23, 2013 at approximately 12:26 a.m., an OSP senior trooper stopped a 1999 Honda Civic four-door displaying Washington license plates for traffic violations northbound along Interstate 5 at the Baldock Rest Area near milepost 282. The car's driver was identified as SAINT TITO MICHAEL SHORTLAND, age 36, from Parkland, Washington.
Subsequent investigation during the traffic stop, with the assistance of a Clackamas County Sheriff's Office drug detection canine, led to the discovery of approximately 14 pounds of marijuana concealed inside the car. Estimated value of the seized marijuana is $30,000.
SHORTLAND was arrested without incident for Unlawful Possession and Distribution of a Controlled Substance - Marijuana and lodged in the Clackamas County Jail.
