A man was arrested during a traffic stop Thursday after police found 70 pounds of marijuana and 300 grams of methamphetamine in a vehicle, Oklahoma City police said.

Victor Castillo, 32, was jailed on complaints of possessing and trafficking illegal drugs and illegal possession of a firearm.

On Friday, police executed a search warrant in connection with the arrest at a residence on the 5000 block of S Olie Avenue.

During that search, officers found a package they “didn’t feel comfortable with,” Capt. Dexter Nelson said. The Oklahoma City bomb squad was called to the residence and determined the package wasn’t dangerous.

Police did not say how the residence is connected to Castillo or whether anything illegal was found in the home.

Castillo remained in the Oklahoma County jail on Friday night in lieu of $150,000 bail.
