Holiday traffic stop yields 12 lbs of pot

Update: The marijuana possession charge against Chilcott was dismissed on Oct. 10, 2012; she pleaded no-contest to a charge of delivery of marijuana.

A Chewelah man was arrested in Oregon on Halloween with 12 pounds of marijuana.

Kristopher Lewis Sasse, 24, was a passenger in a rented 2010 Toyota Camry driven by Angela Caitlin Chilcott, 26, of Felton, Calif., when they were stopped for speeding at milepost 252 on Interstate 5, near Salem, according to the Oregon State Police. 

A drug dog helped find about 12 pounds of marijuana in the car, which state troopers say had Arizona license plates.

Sasse and Chilcott were booked into the Marion County Jail for unlawful possession and distribution of marijuana.

The bust comes about 10 days after a Spokane man was arrested with 20 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop on Highway 97 in Central Oregon.
