Man arrested on drug trafficking complaint

Posted: Updated:


EL RENO, Okla. -- A Georgia man was arrested Thursday in Canadian County after authorities said they found a large shipment of marijuana in his van.

Michael Powell, 38, is being held on a $25,000 bond in the Canadian County jail. Authorities said they found 80 pounds of marijuana wrapped in the bundles in the rental car he was driving on Interstate 40.

Powell tried to flee from the agents but was caught a short time later.  Authorities said judging from the way the drug was packaged, it was likely harvested and processed in Mexico before making its way through Oklahoma.
