A Tuesday morning traffic stop on Interstate 5 near Rice Hill led to the arrest of a Washington man after Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers found approximately 14 lbs of marijuana and one pound of hashish concealed inside the man's vehicle.
 
On September 13, 2011 at approximately 8:24 a.m. an OSP trooper stopped a 2008 Dodge Charger displaying Washington license plates northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 140 for a traffic violation.  The driver was identified as DUSTIN MAC SMITH, age 30, from Suquamish, Washington.
 
Subsequent investigation during the traffic stop with the assistance of an OSP drug detection canine led to two large duffel bags in the trunk and the discovery of approximately 14 lbs of marijuana and one pound of hashish.  Estimated value of the seized marijuana and hashish is $35,000.
 
SMITH was arrested without further incident and lodged in the Douglas County Jail for Unlawful Possession and Distribution of a Controlled Substance - Marijuana.
