Authorities in Ripley County seized nearly a pound of marijuana and arrested a man after a traffic stop Wednesday night.

An ISP Officer pulled over Stephen Huntington, 29, of Holton, on U.S. 50 near the Versailles State Park for a traffic violation around 11:35 p.m.

During the traffic stop, police say the officer became suspicious after smelling an odor of marijuana coming from Huntington’s 1997 Hyundai.

A search of the vehicle revealed just under a pound of marijuana located on the floorboard, according to police.

Huntington was booked into the Ripley County Jail under suspicion of marijuana possession with the intent to distribute, a class D felony.

“This incident is a good example of how simple traffic violations can result in much more serious charges,” reported ISP Sgt. Noel Houze in a public news release.
