A 64-year-old man is in Cooper County Jail after a trooper with the Missouri State Highway Patrol found over 100 pounds of marijuana in his vehicle.


Gary Pinson, of Rocky Hill, South Carolina, was pulled over for a traffic violation on I-70 near the 93 mile marker in Cooper County.


Because of inconsistencies and "deceptive behavior," the trooper asked Pinson for consent to search his vehicle. Pinson denied.


A Highway Patrol drug dog was called to the scene and indicated that drugs were in the vehicle.


In a subsequent search the trooper found 102 pounds of marijuana hidden in the trunk and back seat area.


Pinson was arrested for first-degree drug trafficking.
