LA GRANGE, Texas (AP) - Fayette County authorities have seized approximately 177 pounds of marijuana after a traffic stop.

According to the Fayette County sheriff’s office, deputies pulled over a vehicle Friday on Interstate 10 for an unspecified traffic violation and a deputy asked the driver, 42-year-old Javier Rodriguez, for permission to search the car.

A police K-9 alerted officers to the trunk of the vehicle where authorities found the drugs.

Rodriguez was arrested and has been charged with possession of marijuana. It was not immediately clear if he has an attorney.
