Drug charges follow trunk load of marijuana found in rental car

A 31-year-old man from a neighboring state was arrested recently after a significant load of marijuana was found in the rental car that he used while traveling in Colorado. The driver who faces drug charges was held on a cash-only bond of $50,000. Reportedly, the arrest took place on Interstate 70 at about midday on a recent Wednesday.

According to a report by Colorado State Patrol, a trooper noticed two vehicles driving erratically and passing each other in an unsafe manner. After initiating the traffic stop, the trooper reported several signs of activities that raised suspicion. Among those signs were that the suspect gave illogical travel plans that he kept changing coupled with the fact he was driving a rented vehicle. 

The trooper also noted that the driver's response to a comment about possible drug smuggling surprised him. The driver said the trunk was full, and upon investigation, the trooper found the car's entire trunk filled with 105 pounds of vacuum-packed marijuana. Searching the rest of the vehicle reportedly yielded 15 pounds of concentrated cannabis. This driver was informed that a conviction on drug distribution charges could lead to jail time.

An experienced criminal defense attorney in Colorado can protect the rights of this driver as he awaits the next hearing and throughout all ensuing legal proceedings. The lawyer will likely examine the probable cause for the traffic stop, along with the procedures followed during the search and seizure of the alleged marijuana, and the arrest on drug charges that followed. Any irregularities can be addressed in the court.
