An Oregon State Police (OSP) trooper's traffic stop early Thursday morning on Interstate 5 just north of the Oregon / California border led to the arrest of a Bend-area man after the trooper discovered approximately 42 pounds of marijuana in the car's trunk. The OSP Drug Enforcement Section is continuing the investigation.
On November 3, 2011 at approximately 6:25 a.m. an OSP trooper stopped a rented 2010 Chevrolet Aveo displaying Washington license plates southbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 1 for a traffic violation. The lone occupant was identified as JEFFREY JACK CLUFF, age 42, from Bend.
Subsequent investigation with the assistance of an OSP drug detection canine led to the discovery of approximately 42 pounds of vacuum sealed marijuana inside the trunk. Estimated value of the seized marijuana is $100,000.
CLUFF was arrested and lodged in the Jackson County Jail for Unlawful Possession, Distribution, and Manufacture of a Controlled Substance - Marijuana.
