LIVINGSTON, LA (WAFB) - A 49-year-old Florida woman was arrested on drug charges after a traffic stop turned up 100 pounds of marijuana in the car she was driving Tuesday night.

According to the Livingston Police Department, Donna Stanley of Fruitland Park, FL was pulled over for a driving violation on I-12 East around 9 p.m.

Officers said she appeared nervous when they asked her if there was anything illegal inside her Chevy Impala.

They also said when they asked to look inside the car Stanley refused.

Authorities reported the officers then contacted the Louisiana State Police and a trooper, along with his drug dog, arrived to assist with the investigation.

Police said the dog walked around the car sniffing and indicated there was possibly something near the trunk area.

Officers opened the trunk and reported finding six large bundles of marijuana. They said it weighed 100.2 pounds.

Stanley was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm while in possession of drugs.

She was also cited for following too closely.

She was booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center.

In Louisiana, it is a felony to be in possession of a firearm while in possession of drugs.
