Two men were arrested Friday morning during a traffic stop by Oregon State Police (OSP) along Interstate 5 about ten miles south of Canyonville when troopers found over 6 pounds of marijuana inside their vehicle. The OSP Drug Enforcement Section is continuing the investigation.
According to Lieutenant Douglas Ladd, on April 20, 2012 at approximately 7:30 a.m. an OSP trooper stopped a 2003 GMC Yukon sport utility vehicle displaying Utah license plates for a traffic violation northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 88. The two occupants were identified as driver ALI HUSAIN ALNASIR, age 26, from Monmouth, and passenger DANIEL GARY DEANE, age 24, from Corvallis.
Subsequent investigation with the assistance of an OSP drug detection canine led to the discovery of approximately 6 1/2 pounds of marijuana and other evidence inside the vehicle. Estimated value of the seized marijuana is $16,000.
Both men were arrested and lodged in the Douglas County Jail for Unlawful Possession and Delivery of a Controlled Substance - Marijuana.
