Maryland Police Find 250 Pounds of Marijuana in California Man's Car

Maryland authorities said a California man is facing charges after 250 pounds of marijuana was found in a vehicle he was driving.

The Montgomery County Police Department said in a statement Tuesday that Steven M. Tosi, 53, faces criminal charges related to the possession and trafficking of marijuana. Police said Tosi was pulled over Dec. 5 on Interstate 270 for speeding.

Police said the officer who pulled Tosi over could smell marijuana, and Tosi said he was smoking marijuana. Police said a search of the vehicle turned up vacuum sealed bundles of the drug.

Police said Tosi told them he picked up the marijuana in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and intended to deliver it to Virginia Beach, Virginia.

An online court record system didn't list an attorney for him.
