    Police arrest three people found with marijuana and "unusual hallucinogen"

    Oregon State Police arrested three people after a Monday morning traffic stop in which authorities discovered marijuana and more than 1,000 tablets of an Ecstasy-like "club drug" in the car trunk.

    A senior trooper stopped the driver of a 1994 Honda Accord for an unlawful lane change violation as the car headed north on Interstate 5 near Ashland, Oregon State Police said.

    After further investigation, police found about 1,030 tablets of 2C-B, "an unusual hallucinogen" that sells for $10 to $30 a pill. In addition, police said they found 10 pounds of marijuana in the trunk and 10 starter marijuana plants in the car's passenger compartment.

    The estimated value of the seized 2C-B is $10,000 to $30,000. The marijuana has an estimated value of $25,000.

    Police arrested the three occupants on drug possession and distribution accusations. They are: driver, Peter David Kriesberg, 34, of Santa Cruz, Calif.; and passengers Dustin William White, 28, and Amy R. Villastringham, 24, both from Seattle.

    The investigation is continuing.

    More attention put on research chemicals. One step closer to getting the whole 2c family scheduled :(

    Jeez, and just for an illegal lane change? That's rough.

    "Illegal lane change"="The cops had these guys in their sights already and were looking for probable cause to pull over."

    I could be wrong, maybe they just had the bad luck to run into the "turn signal Nazi" trooper, but I doubt it...

    I agree with bcubed on that one.

    Haven't you ever seen DEA on Spike TV? When they have reasonable suspicion on somebody what they do is follow them and have a cop pull them over. When they do, they get searched and usually caught, unless of course they're innocent or smart ;)

    There's no way it was truly a routine traffic stop.

    @ Bcubed and Greenport- the turtles not so sure. The I-5 corridor is considered a MAJOR smuggling route, drugs from mexico flowing north and drugs from BC flowing south- and massive amounts of cash going both ways. The area where they got nailed is a a major area for such busts- much of the route is no mans land with little police presence- but that area is a major focus point.

    Gotta say they were bloody idiots transporting such things with clones in the passenger compartment. Natural selection at work.
