Truckee CHP: Suspect found with 64 pounds of pot

A South Carolina man found late Tuesday with 64 pounds of suspected marijuana near Truckee was arrested during a traffic stop, the California Highway Patrol said.

Kevin Clarence Miller, 57, is charged with possession of over an ounce of marijuana, use of a false or fabricated compartment, possession of marijuana for sale, and transport for sale, according to jail reports and CHP Officer Michael McDonnell.

Officers stopped Miller between 11:30 p.m. and midnight Tuesday on eastbound Interstate 80 near Floriston Way because his vehicle failed to stay in its lane. A K-9 dog indicated that drugs were in the car, and officers found about 64 pounds of suspected pot in a fuel cell that had a false compartment, McDonnell said.

Arrested on the scene, Miller has since bonded out of jail, reports state.
