Maryland State Police say they found 40 pounds of marijuana in a man's minivan troopers pulled over on Interstate 70.

Police say the van, driven by 52-year-old Stewart Deerr of Gregory, Mich., had a malfunctioning headlight. Troopers say the man was nervous in talking to the officer after he was pulled over on Thursday. The officer called for a police dog to scan the vehicle.

After the dog alerted and a search was performed, officers say the trooper found 39 bricks of marijuana in a drum case in the back of the minivan. Police say cocaine was also found in the vehicle.

The News-Post of Frederick reports that Deerr has been charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and cocaine and other offenses.
