Two men were arrested Monday night when an Oregon State Police (OSP) trooper discovered nearly 12 pounds of marijuana in the car they were traveling in on Interstate 5 in the Salem area. The OSP Drug Enforcement Section is continuing the investigation associated with the arrest and seizure.
On August 29, 2011 at 11:03 p.m. an OSP trooper stopped a 2008 Dodge Charger displaying Arizona license plates northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 253 for a traffic violation. The car's two occupants were identified as driver ANTHONY JAMES HOSNEY, age 40, from Surprise, Arizona, and passenger TIMOTHY JAMES LAMBRECHT, age 52, from Anchorage, Alaska.
Subsequent investigation during the traffic stop with the assistance of an OSP drug detection canine led to the discovery of nearly 12 pounds of marijuana concealed inside the vehicle. The marijuana has an estimated value of $30,000.
HOSNEY and LAMBRECHT were arrested without incident and lodged in the Marion County Jail for Unlawful Manufacture, Possession and Delivery of Marijuana.
