About 100 pounds of marijuana seized by the CHP after a traffic stop in Auburn.

Eduardo Angeles Jr., 23, of Illinois, was taken into custody after his Jeep Cherokee was pulled over by California Highway Patrol authorities on I-80 near Dry Creek Road for speeding.

The officer who pulled Angeles over says he could smell the strong odor coming from the vehicle. After a search, officers say they found the pot in the back.

Angeles is facing several charges, including possession of marijuana for sale and transportation of marijuana for sale.
