A traffic stop on Interstate 80 in Cass County Tuesday afternoon resulted in the recovery of marijuana, a weapon, and the arrest of a man from Colorado. Sgt. Marty McCreedy with Iowa State Patrol in Council Bluffs told KJAN News Trooper Wayne Brosam stopped a 1992 Lincoln Towncar for speeding on I-80 eastbound near the Anita exit, just before 4-p.m., Tuesday.

MCreedy says the Trooper saw indicators of illegal activity and searched the vehicle after receiving permission from the driver. During the search, Brosam discovered nearly 3 pounds of marijuana and a 45-caliber revolver. The driver of the car, 32-year old Keogh Rash, of Edgewater, CO, was taken into custody on charges of Possession with the Intent to Deliver, Prohibited Acts, and Failure to Affix a Drug Tax Stamp.

Rash was brought to the Cass County Jail and later released on $5,000 bond.
