Marijuana Found in Truck Route Violation Stop

(La Porte, IN) - A semi driver with marijuana in his possession was arrested after ignoring no truck route signs in La Porte.


Jason Mobley, 29, was arrested Monday afternoon.


According to La Porte County Police, an officer was monitoring traffic at 200 North and Fail Road, which are used frequently by commercial motor vehicles despite the posting of no truck route signs. Mobley was stopped after disregarding such.


The officer while approaching the cab detected an odor of raw marijuana then arrested Mobley after discovering a warrant out for his arrest for failing to appear in court on a marijuana related charge in another Indiana county.


With help from a K-9 dog, police identified seven grams of marijuana, along with a glass pipe containing burnt marijuana and other drug paraphernalia that were located in the cab. A handgun and 90 rounds of ammunition also turned up during the search, which was illegal for Mobley to have due to a prior felony conviction in his home state of Tennessee.


Mobley had just picked up a load from a La Porte area bread factory prior to being stopped, police said.
