Two Idaho men were arrested Tuesday afternoon when an Oregon State Police (OSP) traffic stop about ten miles north of Lakeview area led troopers to discover over 32 pounds of marijuana concealed in the bed of a pickup truck.
 
According to OSP Sergeant Steve Yates, on December 14, 2010 at about 2:12 p.m. an OSP trooper stopped a 2007 Chevrolet pickup displaying Idaho license plates northbound on Highway 395 near milepost 133 for an equipment violation. The two occupants were identified as driver JARED O. JONES, age 31, and passenger RILEY W. JONES, age 25, both from Boise, Idaho.
 
Subsequent investigation during the traffic stop led to the discovery of approximately 32 pounds of marijuana concealed in garbage cans in the bed of the pickup. Estimated value of the seized marijuana is approximately $80,000.
 
Both men were arrested and lodged in the Lake County Jail for Unlawful Possession and Delivery of a Controlled Substance – Marijuana. No information available for this release to indicate if the men were related.
 
OSP troopers were assisted at the scene by Lake County Sheriff's Department.
