Posted: Updated:

Just after midnight, Sunday night, a Indiana State Police Trooper operating a stationary radar on U.S. 41 south of S.R. 168 observed a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck with only one headlight. 

The Trooper stopped the pickup truck near Coal Mine Road.  He approached the vehicle and says he detected a strong odor of marijuana inside the truck. 

While searching the truck officers noticed screws were missing from the middle console.  After lifting the console they found two plastic baggies containing approximately 78 grams of marijuana.

The driver, 25-year-old Michael Broyles of Greenville, KY, was arrested and taken to the Gibson County Jail where he's currently being held on a $1,500 bond.

Possession of over 30 grams of Marijuana is a Class D felony.
