Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 25-year-old Illinois man on a felony marijuana possession charge early Monday morning after a traffic stop on Southwest Stallings Drive.

According to the arrest affidavit, a Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office deputy made a traffic stop on a vehicle in the 1500 block of Southwest Stallings Drive at about 1 a.m. Monday.

During the search, the deputy found 10.4 pounds of marijuana hidden in the vehicle's trunk, the affidavit stated.

Lewis was arrested at the scene for possession of marijuana between 5 and 50 pounds and taken to the county jail.
