Traffic Stop Leads Troopers to 10 Pounds of Weed

A man pulled over in Interstate 80 for a routine speeding stop was arrested Saturday after Nevada  State Troopers found over 10 pounds of marijuana in his possession.

Kenny Su Kim, 44 of Fremont, CA, was found blazing his way down I-80 near Elko by troopers and pulled over. Suspecting some form of criminal activity, the trooper summoned a K-9 drug dog to sniff out the vehicle. The dog alerted the trooper to a possible controlled substance in the car.

Kim was eventually released from the scene as the officer had no other reason to keep him. Later on, the officer obtained a search warrant and discovered 10 pounds of the green stuff in a luggage bag, prompting authorities to track Kim down at the Red Lion Hotel & Casino and arrest him on charges of  unlawful import of a controlled substance, possession not for sale and possession for sale of a controlled substance.

His bail was set at $15,142.
