MOUNTAIN HOME, Idaho (AP) — An Oregon man is facing a felony drug trafficking charge in southwest Idaho after police say they found 22.5 pounds of marijuana worth about $100,000 in his vehicle.

The Elmore County Sheriff’s Office says 53-year-old James Lewis Kelley of Oregon City became nervous during a traffic stop on Thursday. Kelley refused a request by police to search his vehicle, but a drug-sniffing dog outside the vehicle alerted to the presence of drugs.

Police say a subsequent search found the marijuana in the vehicle. Kelley on Saturday was being held in the Elmore County Jail with a bail of $100,000.
