MASSENA, N.Y. (WWNY) - A 25-year-old man living in Canada was arrested Sunday after U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Massena border crossing found he had more than seven pounds of marijuana in his vehicle.

CBP officers say they found a box in the trunk that contained plastic bags of what appeared to be marijuana.

A field test resulted in a positive result for the drug, which, at 7.75 pounds, would have a street value of about $15,000.

The driver and the marijuana were turned over two state police, who are expected to charge him with a felony charge of criminal possession of marijuana.
