An Oregon State Police (OSP) traffic stop last Thursday on Interstate 5 in Roseburg led to the arrest of a northeast Washington man after troopers discovered approximately 24 pounds of marijuana concealed in the pickup he was driving. The OSP Drug Enforcement Section is continuing the investigation.
 
On February 2, 2012 at approximately 5:08 p.m. an OSP trooper stopped a 2003 Dodge pickup displaying Washington license plates northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 123 for a traffic violation. The pickup’s driver was identified as KEVIN C. McKEAG, age 28, from Chattaroy, Washington.
 
Subsequent investigation with the assistance of an OSP drug detection canine led to the discovery of approximately 24 pounds of marijuana concealed under the bed of the pickup. Estimated value of the seized marijuana is $60,000.
 
McKEAG was arrested and is scheduled to appear at a later date in Douglas County Circuit Court for Unlawful Possession and Delivery of a Controlled Substance – Marijuana.
