An Idaho man was arrested last week after an Oregon State Police dog reportedly sniffed out 40 pounds of marijuana hidden within his rented compact car during a traffic stop on U.S. Highway 20 east of Bend.
John Scott, 29, of Ammon, Idaho, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of unlawful manufacture, possession and delivery of marijuana, according to the OSP. He was being held Monday night at the Deschutes County jail on $15,000 bail, said a deputy at the jail.
An OSP trooper pulled Scott over for unspecified traffic violations around 11:15 a.m. Thursday about 15 miles east of Bend, according to the OSP. Scott was driving a 2013 Chevrolet Cruz with Utah license plates and headed east.
