DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - Iowa authorities seized nearly nine pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop near Dubuque this weekend.

The Dubuque County Sherriff’s office says the drugs were found after a vehicle with North Dakota plates was stopped on Highway 151 Saturday afternoon.

The vehicle was initially stopped for an equipment violation before authorities found 8.95 pounds of marijuana inside.

The Colorado man who was driving was arrested on suspicion of drug possession with the intent to deliver and failure to pay Iowa’s drug tax stamp. He was not immediately identified.

Authorities said the man was being held on $10,000 bond.
