A traffic stop Saturday on Interstate 40 in Canadian County led to the discovery of two bottles of THC liquid and nearly $6,000.

Deputies arrested Curtis Lee Johnson, 40, of Baltimore, and William Dejuan Fox, 33, of Charlotte, N.C., on complaints of possession of a controlled substance and concealing proceeds derived from the sale of drugs.

The two were driving east in a rented van when deputies stopped them for an improper lane change, according to a news release.

A drug-sniffing dog notified the deputies there might be drugs in the car. Deputies found two bottles of THC liquid, totaling 1 ounce of the substance.

THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is a chemical in marijuana that causes some of the drug’s mind-altering effects. The ounce of liquid is suspected to have a street value of between $3,500 and $5,000, according to a news release.

A spokesman for the Canadian County sheriff’s office said they believe the two men were transporting the drugs from California to the East Coast.

Johnson and Fox were booked into Canadian County jail, where they remained in lieu of $10,000 bail.
