A traffic stop netted 22 pounds of marijuana this weekend, the Oklahoma County sheriff reported Monday.

Carlecas Blackwell, 43, was stopped Saturday near NW 150 and State Highway 74. He was driving with a revoked license, Sheriff John Whetsel said.

A deputy found a duffel bag in the trunk of the car with 19 bundles of marijuana, weighing 22 pounds, Whetsel said. Also recovered from inside the vehicle was a loaded handgun and prescription medication, he said.

Blackwell was arrested on complaints of possession of a weapon while committing a felony, possession of drugs with intent to distribute, possession of drugs without a valid prescription, driving with a revoked license and failure to maintain insurance.

He was released Sunday on $13,500 bail, the sheriff said.
