HENDERSON - State Police seized nearly 50 pounds of marijuana and arrested a Texas man during a traffic stop this morning on I-10.

Troopers stopped 35-year-old Myvar Abdullah's car at the Henderson and Cecilia exit around 2:45 a.m.

They brought in a St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office K-9 to sniff the vehicle after they said Abdullah refused to let them search it, and found two packaged bundles of marijuana in a duffel back in the car's trunk.

Troopers booked Abdullah on charges of possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
