Oklahoma County Sheriff's Deputy Finds 200 Pounds Of Marijuana During Traffic Stop

Posted: Updated:

A man is in jail after a sheriff's deputy finds 200 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop Saturday.

The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office put out a news release that indicates Adrian Castro, 22, was pulled over after he reportedly made an illegal lane change without signaling.

When the deputy asked him for his driver's license, Castro handed the deputy a fake Texas ID card.  Castro told the deputy he had it made to get into nightclubs while he was underage.

Castro also could not provide proof of insurance, so the deputy called a wrecker.

That's when the deputy smelled an odor of marijuana and requested a K-9 officer.

The police dog hit on four large boxes inside the van.

Deputies started searching and pulled 200 pounds of marijuana from the van.

Castro was booked into the Oklahoma Count Detention Center on complaints of trafficking illegal drugs, possession of false identification, failure to show insurance and traveling left of center.

He is being held on $26,000 bail.

"This was a great job by our deputy who took the extra steps of doing a thorough field investigation which led to getting these illegal drugs off the streets", says Oklahoma County Sheriff John Whetsel.
