BREAUX BRIDGE - State troopers arrested one person and seized around $1 million worth of marijuana after a traffic stop on I-10 east of Breaux Bridge this week.

Troopers arrested Pedro Matamoros, 38, of Brownsville, Texas on suspicion of possession with intent to distribute marijuana after the stop early Monday morning.

State Police said after they stopped Matamoros' van and got permission to search it, they discovered dozens of wrapped bales of marijuana inside weighing about 690 pounds.

Investigators said the drugs were bound for a location in Louisiana.
