Traffic stop leads to seizure of more than 130 lbs of marijuana in Camden County
The Camden County Sheriff’s arrested a Colorado man over the weekend, charged with multiple felonies
Following a traffic stop in Macks Creek on July 30, Camden County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested, 45-year-old Colorado resident, Kenneth A Lamoreaux. The initial traffic stop occurred as Lamoreaux was flagged for driving with an expired out-of-state temporary tag on his vehicle. During the stop, deputies asked for permission to search Lamoreaux’s vehicle, citing a strong odor of cannabis. Lamoreaux told the officer that he would find a ‘significant amount’ of marijuana in the vehicle.
That significant amount would turn out to be more than 130 pounds of marijuana, individually bagged and packaged, then stuffed inside several large, black trash bags.
In addition to the more than 100 lbs of marijuana discovered during the search, the deputy also recovered a firearm from the vehicle.
The Sheriff’s Department reports that tests confirmed the cannabis material in the vehicle to be marijuana. 3
