BOISE -- A traffic stop along Interstate 84 led to a big pot bust in Payette County Wednesday night.

Idaho State Police say they seized 106 pounds of marijuana seized in a search on I-84, about five miles east of the Oregon border.

Officials say a Payette County K-9 alerted to the odor of the drugs just before 7 p.m. when police stopped 39-year-old Kennard Mueller of Florida for a traffic violation.

Mueller is now charged with felony drug trafficking.
