An Oklahoma County deputy pulled over a driver on Highway 74 near N.W. 150th Street, and discovered nearly two-dozen pounds of marijuana in the car.

The deputy initially stopped 43-year-old Carlecas Blackwell on November 17 for a traffic violation, and found he was driving with a revoked license. Blackwell's car was impounded, and during an inventory of the vehicle the deputy found a duffle bag stuffed with 19 bundles.

Those bundles contained 22 pounds of marijuana. Deputies also found a loaded Glock-35 pistol and prescription medication in the car.

Deputies arrested Blackwell on several complaints, including possession of drugs with intent to distribute, possession of a weapon while committing a felony, and driving with a revoked license.

Blackwell posted $13,500 bail and was released from jail.
