OBION COUNTY, TN (KFVS) -

A Kentucky man was arrested after a traffic stop revealed his vehicle had 80 pounds of marijuana.

Damon Logan, 40, of Greenville, KY was stopped by Agent Scott Watkins of the Union City Police Department. Watkins is assigned to the 27th Judicial Drug Task Force criminal interdiction unit.

During the traffic stop, Watkins' K-9 partner, Kodiak, a narcotic detection dog, conducted a sniff of the vehicle.

During the sniff Kodiak alerted to the presence of narcotics.

About four pounds of marijuana was found in four packages hidden under the bed-liner of the truck.
