A Granger man was arrested for having nearly three and a half pounds of marijuana in his car during a traffic stop on the Indiana Toll Road.

The arrest happened around 1:15 a.m. on Friday when an Indiana State Police Trooper stopped a black 2011 Camry for a moving violation on the westbound Indiana Toll Road near the 94 mile marker.

While the trooper was speaking to the driver, 23-year-old Matthew Luger of Granger,  investigators say he discovered a small glass jar containing suspected marijuana.

A subsequent search of the Camry revealed nearly three and a half pounds of suspected marijuana in several clear plastic bags as well as paraphernalia.

Luger was arrested and taken to the Elkhart County Jail for preliminary charges of dealing marijuana, possession of marijuana, and possession of paraphernalia.
