Missouri traffic stop yields 400 pounds of pot-laced bars
LEXINGTON, Mo. (AP) - A California man has pleaded not guilty to Missouri charges that he planned to deal 400 pounds of edible marijuana chocolate bars allegedly found in his car during a traffic stop.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 42-year-old Jeffrey Woo of Ladera Ranch, California, was arrested Tuesday for possession of a controlled substance with plans to distribute it.
Woo was arraigned Wednesday in Lafayette County just east of Kansas City, and he pleaded not guilty. Bond was set at $100,000.
The patrol says Woo was eastbound on Interstate 70 when he was stopped for an unspecified traffic infraction. The patrol says a search turned up the marijuana chocolates in boxes in the car.
Online court records don't show whether he has an attorney to comment on his behalf.
