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

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

Police say that Tosi told them that 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.
