Maintain lane when driving with 5 pounds of marijuana to avoid California DUI

California DUI criminal defense lawyers are told someone was arrested early Monday morning after he was found to be California DUI and had five pounds of marijuana in his vehicle, which was traveling southbound on Highway 101, north of the East Washington Street exit.

California Highway Patrol officers spotted a Toyota Tundra weaving on the highway at around 2:45 a.m. They found that David Lee Thomas, 39, was driving the vehicle, and administered California dui field sobriety tests to him.

Thomas subsequently was arrested for California DUI and while performing a routine search of the vehicle, CHP officers located a plastic tub containing some 5 pounds of dried marijuana, which had been vacu-sealed and packaged for sales, said CHP Officer Jonathan Sloat.

Thomas was booked into Sonoma County Jail on charges of California DUI, possession of marijuana for sales and transportation of marijuana for sales.
