Officers found over a pound of marijuana inside a car after a traffic stop. 

Police said they pulled over a vehicle for an equipment violation when an officer saw what looked like marijuana in the back seat. The suspected marijuana is tied in plastic bags, but not in a sealed container as the law requires. 

“While the personal use of marijuana is legal in California, there are still guidelines that must be followed to ensure the safety of the community,” read the tweet. “It is illegal to drive while under the influence of marijuana and an marijuana being transported in a car must be in a sealed container.”

Officers later confirmed it was over a pound of marijuana in the backseat and also discovered a loaded firearm as well. The driver is arrested for multiple gun charges.
