NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Nacogdoches Police officers arrested three Indiana men and seized 17.5 pounds of marijuana following a traffic stop on Loop 224 Friday morning. All three men were charged with felony possession of marijuana.

Willie Whiteside, Frederick Dillard, and Charles Davis, all of Indianapolis, Indiana, were arrested at the scene and charged with third-degree felony possession of marijuana.

According to a press release from the Nacogdoches Police Department, Whiteside was driving a 2003 Lincoln Navigator in the 5000 block of Northwest Loop 224 when he was stopped by a Nacogdoches PD K9 officer.

Once the NPD officers on the scene established probable cause to search the vehicle, they allegedly found 17.5 pounds of marijuana packaged in plastic bricks in the rear of the vehicle. The street value of the marijuana is estimated to be more than $22,000.

No bail has been set for any of the three men at this time.
