During a traffic stop Tuesday afternoon, a Nacogdoches Police officer found approximately two pounds of marijuana in a duffel bag and arrested the driver - a 35-year-old man from Monroe, Louisiana - for felony possession of marijuana.

Roderick D. Robinson was charged with possession of marijuana between 4 ounces and 5 pounds, which is a state-jail felony. His bond was set at $10,000.

According to the police report, the Nacogdoches Police officer stopped Robinson's vehicle in the 5200 block of NW Stallings Drive between 1:20 and 1:22 p.m. Tuesday. After the officer noticed that Robinson was acting nervous, he also noticed that the man's travel itinerary "was not consisting with the normal motoring public."

The officer got permission to search the vehicle and allegedly found about 2 pounds of marijuana in a duffel bag on the rear seat. Robinson was arrested and transported to the Nacogdoches County Jail. The vehicle was returned to its owner.
