An Oregon State Police traffic stop on Interstate 84 near Ontario led to the arrest of an Aloha man.

A trooper claims to have found more than 10 pounds of marijuana inside the car's trunk during the stop, police say.

Rose-Gonzalez was arrested and placed in the Malheur County Jail on suspicion of unlawful possession, distribution and manufacture of a controlled substance.

The estimated value of the pot is $25,000, according to troopers.
