Two men were arrested early Sunday morning after a large amount of marijuana, THC oil and cash was found in their possession during a traffic stop.

According to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy pulled the car over on Tall Cedars Parkway near Rt. 50 shortly after 2 a.m. Jan. 27 after a seeing vehicle traveling erratically. During the traffic stop, the deputy smelled marijuana. A search of the vehicle found lots of it—4.17 pounds—along with 16 vials of THC oil and $8,130 in cash.
