An Oregon State Police (OSP) traffic contact on Thursday
morning south of Portland led to the arrest of a New York man on
marijuana-related charges. The initial
contact led to the discovery of about 72 lbs. of marijuana.
On May 2, 2013 at about 2:50 a.m. an OSP trooper observed
multiple traffic violations northbound on Interstate 5 south of Portland near
milepost 282 involving a 2012 Mitsubishi passenger car. The trooper made contact with the driver and
identified him as CARL JOHNSON, age 21, from Syracuse, New York.
Subsequent investigation during the contact led to the
discovery of approximately 72 lbs. of marijuana in the trunk of the
vehicle. The approximate value of the
marijuana is $145,000.
