An Oregon State Police (OSP) traffic stop Monday afternoon on Highway 395 near Lakeview led to the seizure of over 8 pounds of marijuana and charges for two Idaho men. The OSP Drug Enforcement Section is continuing the investigation.
 
On March 11, 2013 at approximately 4:13 p.m., an OSP trooper stopped a 2001 Ford Expedition displaying Idaho license plates for a traffic violation on Highway 395 near milepost 128. The vehicle's two occupants  were identified as driver JONATHAN D. KILBY, age 24, from McCall, Idaho, and passenger STEVEN P. RAWLING, age 27, from Emmett, Idaho.
 
Subsequent investigation during the traffic stop led the trooper to discover over 8 pounds of marijuana in an ice cooler in back of the vehicle. Estimated value of the seized marijuana is approximately $20,000.
 
KILBY and RAWLING were cited and released to appear in Lake County Circuit Court for Unlawful Possession and Distribution of a Controlled Substance - Marijuana.
