A 52-year-old driver stopped by Oregon state troopers Tuesday near Grants Pass told police he was driving home to Wisconsin.
Police said they eventually allowed the man to continue his journey, but not without a citation for illegal export of marijuana.
Troopers said they found 132 pounds of marijuana in the man’s car.
State police said they stopped the driver on Interstate 5, and the man told them he had flown into Medford. Troopers said they noticed something was amiss and searched his car. That’s when they discovered dozens of vacuum-packed bags of marijuana inside two duffle bags, police said.
The discovery led to the illegal export citation. The driver, identified by police as Bryant Oglen, was eventually released.
