A Thursday night traffic stop by an Oregon State Police (OSP) trooper led to the seizure of 17 pounds of marijuana near Wilsonville.  The OSP Drug Enforcement Section is continuing the investigation.
 
On May 10, 2012 at approximately 11:26 p.m. an OSP senior trooper stopped a 2003 Ford Escort with Washington license plates on Interstate 5 at milepost 284 northbound for two traffic violations. The driver was identified as NICHOLAS KEITH JOLLY, age 21, of Central Point.  There was also a female passenger in the vehicle.
 
The trooper called a narcotics canine handler from the Washington County Sheriff's office for assistance.  A subsequent investigation and search led to the discovery of 17 pounds of marijuana and 32 ounces of THC oil.  Estimated value of the controlled substances is approximately $40,000.
 
JOLLY was taken into custody and lodged in the Clackamas County Jail for Unlawful Possession and Delivery of a Controlled Substance-Marijuana.  The female was not charged and was released at the scene.
