MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — A Colorado man faces a felony drug charge after allegedly being caught with 30 pounds of marijuana in North Dakota.

The Morton County Sheriff's Office says a deputy stopped 29-year-old Jacob Todd, of Loveland, Colorado, for speeding on Wednesday. A police dog indicated there were drugs in the vehicle, and authorities say they found bags of marijuana worth about $30,000 on the street.

Todd faces a drug charge that carries a maximum punishment of 20 years in prison. He made an initial court appearance Thursday and will enter a plea later. Court documents don't list an attorney for him.
