In a news release, OSP said that Junior Agustin Martinez-Toscano, 25, of Grandview, Wash., was arrested on charges of possession, manufacture and delivery of marijuana.
Lt. Kelly Collins said in the release that at about 2:35 a.m. a trooper stopped a Ford Ranger pickup with Washington license plates northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 32 for a traffic violation. The release didn’t identify the violation. Martinez-Toscano was alone in the truck, police said.
While the pickup was stopped, the release said, an OSP drug-detection dog discovered about 45 pounds of marijuana concealed in the truck’s bed.
Martinez-Toscano was arrested and lodged in the Jackson County Jail on the drug charges, a charge of first-degree possession of a forged instrument and suspicion of being in the country illegally. He remained in jail Thursday afternoon without bail.
OSP Drug Enforcement Section detectives are continuing the investigation.
