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.
