Speeding car in Sacramento yields many pounds of pot, CHP says

California Highway Patrol officers said they pulled over a speeding car in Sacramento that contained 57 pounds of marijuana.

Officers said they saw the 2013 Dodge Charger traveling at about 80 mph at 4:30 a.m. Thursday near Interstate 5 and Highway 50. Initially slow to respond to patrol vehicle's emergency lights, the driver eventually exited I-5 at Seamas Avenue and pulled over on Riverside Boulevard.

The officer could smell the odor of marijuana inside the vehicle upon speaking with the driver, Milo Conlin, 37, of Chico, a CHP press release states. The officer could also see two large, sealed plastic bags on the rear seat.

Eventually, six large bags containing numerous 1- to 2-pound plastic bags of marijuana were confiscated. Also found, the CHP said, was a pound of concentrated cannabis.

Conlin, in possession of $2,000 in cash, was arrested on suspicion of possession of concentrated cannabis, transportation of marijuana for sale and possession of marijuana for sale.
