A Thursday traffic stop on the Indiana Toll Road resulted in the seizure of over two pounds of marijuana.
An ISP Trooper stopped a silver 2002 Honda for several traffic violations while it was traveling eastbound near the 80 mile marker. This is approximately three miles east of the Notre Dame exit on the Indiana Toll Road. While talking to the driver, the officer could smell the odor of suspected marijuana and called for another trooper to assist.
Reports indicate that while the officer was conducting a probable cause search a total of seven glass jars filled with suspected marijuana were seized. The weight of the suspected marijuana was almost two and a half pounds.
The driver, Joseph Herbaugh, age 23 of Reno, Nevada, was arrested on preliminary charges of Possession of Marijuana and Dealing Marijuana.
