Two Massachusetts residents face numerous drug charges after police in New Jersey allegedly found about 65 pounds of marijuana hidden in the trunk of their rented car.
 
NJ.com reports Mahwah police stopped the car driven by 33-year-old Boston resident Jawara McIntosh after they saw him driving erratically Friday night on Route 17 north. They then noticed several open bottles of alcohol in the vehicle.

  McIntosh and his 23-year-old girlfriend, Carlotta Leslie, both said the car had been rented through a third party. But they gave conflicting answers when police asked where they were headed.
 
Officers found the marijuana in two suitcases after McIntosh gave them permission to search the car.
 
McIntosh and Leslie each remained jailed Saturday on $200,000 bail. It wasn't known if either had retained an attorney.
