Police seize more than 3 pounds of marijuana valued at $7,500

An Oregon State Police trooper found more than 3 pounds of marijuana when he stopped a Portland driver speeding east on the freeway near North Powder Wednesday.

Jesus Macias, 35, is being held at the Union County Jail in La Grande on charges of possessing, distributing and manufacturing marijuana.

Macias was driving a rented 2013 Ford Fusion displaying Arizona license plates when he was pulled over for an alleged speeding violation at about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, an OSP press release stated. 

The marijuana, with an estimated value of $7,500, was found in a suitcase in the back seat of the rental car, police said. The OSP Drug Enforcement Section is continuing the investigation.
