An Oregon State Police (OSP) trooper's traffic stop last Thursday on Highway 395 north of Lakeview in Lake County led to the arrest of an Idaho man after trooper discovered over 8 pounds of marijuana inside the man's van. OSP Drug Enforcement Section is continuing the investigation.
 
According to Sergeant Steve Yates, on October 20, 2011 at approximately 10:06 a.m. an OSP trooper stopped a 2004 Kia Sedona van displaying Idaho license plates for a traffic violation on Highway 395 near milepost 78. The driver was identified as JACK DAVID SAYLER, age 32, from Caldwell, Idaho.
 
Subsequent investigation during the traffic stop with the assistance of an OSP drug detection canine led to the discovery of over 8 pounds of marijuana inside a duffle bag on a rear seat of the van. Estimated value of the seized marijuana is $20,000.
 
SAYLER was taken into custody and lodged in the Lake County Jail for Unlawful Possession, Distribution and Manufacture of a Controlled Substance - Marijuana.
