An Oregon State Police (OSP) traffic stop Wednesday morning south of Roseburg led to the arrest of a Boise, Idaho man after a trooper discovered approximately 3 pounds of marijuana in his vehicle.
 
According to Lieutenant Douglas Ladd, on February 22, 2012 at approximately 7:35 a.m. an OSP trooper stopped a 1993 Toyota Tercel displaying Idaho license plates northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 116 for a traffic violation. The vehicle’s occupants were driver RYAN M. ODLE, age 25, from Boise, Idaho and a 22-year old male transient passenger.
 
Subsequent investigation during the traffic stop with the assistance of an OSP drug detection canine led to the discovery of approximately 3 pounds of marijuana concealed in the trunk. Estimated value of the seized marijuana is $7,500.
 
ODLE was taken into custody and lodged in the Douglas County Jail for Unlawful Possession and Delivery of a Controlled Substance – Marijuana.
 
The passenger was not arrested.
