A traffic stop ended with the arrest of two men after police found 112 pounds of compressed marijuana in the vehicle, authorities said.

James Hutchinson, 31, and John Matthew Lee, 30, were arrested Sunday on complaints of trafficking illegal drugs for distribution.

Police pulled over Hutchinson and Lee about 11:40 a.m. Sunday at NE 36 and Interstate 35 for a traffic violation, according to the police report. Police did not specify what the traffic violation was.

The vehicle contained two cardboard boxes with 100 bundles of compressed marijuana, according to the report.

Hutchinson and Lee were taken to the Oklahoma County jail. Hutchinson bailed out Monday. Lee remained in jail Wednesday with bail set at $25,000.
