State police arrested a driver after finding about a pound and a half of "high quality" marijuana in his car during a traffic stop off Interstate 84 west in Tolland, state police said.

Jameson Douglas Irvine, 27, of Southbury, is facing multiple charges including possession of marijuana.

While conducting motor vehicle enforcement on I-84 westbound on Aug. 6 at about 7:30 p.m., police pulled over a blue Ford Fusion driving in the right shoulder while exiting the highway onto Route 195 in Tolland.

State police smelled pot in the car when speaking with him and investigated, state police said.

A state police K-9 team and troopers found the marijuana in the trunk of the car and seized it.

State police charged Irvine with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of over four ounces of marijuana and driving in an improper lane.

State police issued him a $250,000 bond. He was scheduled to appear in Rockville Superior Court on Friday.
