EL RENO, Okla.- A Wisconsin man was arrested after allegedly being found with 22 pounds of marijuana inside his vehicle.

Authorities with the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office stopped 43-year-old Jerry Alexander along I-40 after a deputy couldn’t read his license plate.

A report by the deputy claims that he could smell the odor of marijuana coming from the open window of Alexander’s Jeep.

When asked where he was coming from, Alexander reportedly said, “Laredo-rillo.”

Deputies arrested Alexander after learning that he was wanted on a drug trafficking charge in Arizona.

While searching his vehicle, officials say they found 22 pounds of marijuana stuffed inside a duffle bag.
