ALAIEDON TWP - A local deputy made an intoxicating discovery Monday. The Ingham County deputy discovered 100 pounds of marijuana inside a car during a traffic stop.

At around 10:30a.m. Monday Deputy Scott Macomber pulled the car over along I-96 near the 127 interchange in Alaiedon Township for failing to signal during a lane change. After running the license plate, the deputy discovered the driver had a warrant out for failing to appear on a drunk driving charge.

During the traffic stop Deputy Macomber noticed a strong smell of marijuana, along with other indicators of possible drug activity. The driver denied having any marijuana, but a search of the car revealed two black trash bags. The bags contained 6 bricks of marijuana, weighing approximately 100 pounds all together. The deputy also confiscated $1,500 in cash and the car.

The driver was arrested for possession with intent to deliver marijuana. He is a 35-year-old Muskegon Heights man. His name is not being released until the arraignment, which is expected to be Tuesday afternoon. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion.
