Following a traffic stop on U.S. Highway 59 Sunday morning, Texas Department of Public Safety troopers arrested a 26-year-old Memphis, Tennessee man on a felony marijuana charge after they allegedly found approximately 13 pounds of weed hidden in his car.

Larry Darnell Green is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a third-degree felony charge of possession of marijuana between 5 and 50 pounds. Green's bail has been set at $40,000.

Trooper David Hendry, a DPS spokesman, said Green was driving a Hyundai XG5 on Highway 59 in Nacogdoches County when he was pulled over on a traffic violation. After the trooper on the scene talked to Green, he got consent to search his vehicle and found bundles of marijuana concealed in the interior.

Hendry said that amount of marijuana has an estimated street value of $7,000.
