A Boise, Idaho man was arrested Wednesday by Oregon State Police (OSP) after he was found in possession of over 4 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop on Highway 20 about seventeen miles east of Burns.
 
On March 24, 2010 at approximately 12:30 p.m. an OSP Patrol sergeant and OSP Fish & Wildlife trooper were involved in a traffic stop of a 2007 Chevrolet four-door pickup displaying Idaho license plates on Highway 20 near milepost 149 for a traffic violation. The driver, JEFFREY BULLINGTON, age 48, from Boise, Idaho was accompanied by his dog.
 
Subsequent investigation during the traffic stop led to the discovery of nearly 4 1/2 lbs. of marijuana concealed in a pet carrier in the pickup's open bed. The seized marijuana has an estimated value of $12,000.
 
BULLINGTON was taken into custody without incident and lodged in Harney County Jail for Unlawful Possession and Delivery of Marijuana.
 
His dog was taken to a local veterinary clinic for safekeeping until it could be released to someone.
