An Oregon State Police traffic stop Wednesday afternoon, along Interstate 84 near North Powder led to the arrest of a Portland resident. The trooper found approximately 3 lbs of marijuana inside the rented car.

March 26, at approximately 12:30 p.m., an OSP trooper stopped a rented 2013 Ford Fusion displaying Arizona license plates eastbound on Interstate 84 near milepost 282 for a speed violation. The driver was identified as Jesus Macias, age 35, from Portland.

Subsequent investigation during the traffic stop led the trooper to find approximately 3 lbs of marijuana inside a suitcase on the rear seat. Estimated value of the seized marijuana is $7500.

Macias was taken into custody and lodged in the Union County Jail for Unlawful Possession, Distribution and Manufacture of a Controlled Substance. The OSP Drug Enforcement Section is continuing the investigation.
