WABASH COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A traffic stop made by an ISP trooper led to an arrest of a Fort Wayne man on Tuesday.

Police say it happened at around 7:38 p.m. when a car traveling on U.S. 24 near Wabash County 700 West was stopped for allegedly exceeding the posted speed limit.

While the trooper was speaking with the driver, 20-year-old Joshua Cobb of Fort Wayne, he noticed the odor of marijuana coming from the car.

During a search of the vehicle, the trooper discovered a bag containing 286 Xanax pills (around 90 grams) hidden behind a spare tire in the trunk.

Cobb was taken to the Wabash County Jail and could face charges of possession of a controlled substance and dealing in a schedule IV controlled substance.
