I-70 stop yields marijuana
A man was arrested last week after he allegedly was found in possession of more than a pound of marijuana on Interstate 70 in De Beque Canyon, according to the Western Colorado Joint Drug Task Force.
Marvinlevanie Brewer, 34, could face a charge of possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
According to an arrest affidavit, officers stopped a Toyota Camry that was speeding eastbound on I-70 near mile marker 53 on Sept. 1. After officers spoke with the driver and Brewer, who was a passenger in the vehicle, and received two different stories about their travel plans, a drug dog detected the odor of drugs in the trunk, the affidavit said.
Officers searched the trunk and found 1.2 pounds of marijuana in a vacuum-packed bag inside a suitcase. A wallet found inside the suitcase contained Brewer’s identification, the affidavit said.
