Layton police on Monday found $50,000 worth of marijuana in the duffel bag of a man suspected of transporting drugs from California to Utah.
Police had been investigating the man, 35, when an officer pulled him over for a traffic violation on Interstate 15 near Hill Field Road on Monday evening, said Sgt. Brady Fitzpatrick.
Officers found 10 pounds of marijuana in a duffel bag in the trunk of his rental car, Fitzpatrick said. A confidential informant previously told police the man had sold him drugs, Fitzpatrick said.
