Tuesday traffic stop nets large amounts of high-grade marijuana, hash


State troopers netted a large amount of high-grade marijuana and hashish during a routine traffic stop Tuesday morning.

Trooper Will Richter pulled over a 2013 Chevy sedan, traveling south on Hwy. 287, for speeding at the roadside park near New London Road on Feb. 5 at approximately 9:56 a.m. Discovered in the trunk of the rental car were three duffle bags containing a total 125 pounds of hydroponic marijuana, valued at $687,000 by weight, and 82.6 grams of hashish.

During the stop, driver Benjamin Bradley Cohen, 29, of California, gave conflicting stories about where he was going, raising suspicions of the trooper. When asked for permission to search the vehicle, the driver refused, said DPS spokesman Tony Fulton.

K-9 handler Kirk Horton of the Clay County Sheriff’s Office was called to the scene. The drug dog alerted officers that illegal drugs might be inside the vehicle.

Cohen is charged with possession of marijuana in an amount of more than 50 pounds, less than 2,000 pounds, and possession of a controlled substance more than 4 ounces, less than 200 ounces. Bond for each charge has been set at $100,000 each.
