Two Idaho residents were arrested Friday afternoon by Oregon State Police (OSP) during a traffic stop on Highway 97 south of LaPine in northern Klamath County when troopers discovered over one pound of marijuana, a stolen laptop computer, and a .357 handgun concealed in their pickup. OSP is continuing the investigation.

On March, 2, 2012 at approximately 2:55 p.m. two OSP troopers stopped a 1997 Ford pickup displaying Idaho license plates on Highway 97 near milepost 188 for a traffic violation. The two occupants were identified as driver JASON T. BROWN, age 31, from Star, Idaho, and passenger TAMMI L. LEUCK, age 36, from Boise, Idaho.

Subsequent investigation during the traffic stop led to the discovery in the pickup of over 1 pound of marijuana inside a suitcase, prescription pills, a stolen laptop computer, and a .357 handgun. Estimated value of seized marijuana is $2500.

BROWN and LEUCK were arrested and lodged in the Klamath County Jail for Unlawful Possession and Delivery of Marijuana, Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance, Theft in the Second Degree, and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm.
