COVINGTON, La. (AP) – Authorities say a California man speeding down an interstate in Louisiana has been arrested after deputies found 2 pounds (1 kilogram) of marijuana in cereal boxes.

News outlets report 23-year-old Donald Roots-Scott Jr. was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, expired driver’s license and speeding.

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that deputies pulled Roots-Scott over for traveling at nearly 90 mph (145 kph) on Interstate 12 on Tuesday. Scott told deputies that his driver’s license was expired and marijuana was inside the vehicle.

It’s unclear if Roots-Scott has a lawyer.
