STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania State Police say they found 20 pounds of marijuana in boxes wrapped as Christmas presents inside a minivan after a traffic stop.

The Centre Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/1j4exXu ) that 38-year-old Randy Jesus Valdivia, of Surfside, Fla., faces felony drug charges after the stop on Interstate 80 near State College.

Police say they became suspicious after Valdivia was stopped Thursday afternoon, and got him to agree to a search.

They say they found 20 pounds of weed vacuum-sealed inside large boxes wrapped as Christmas gifts.

Online court records say he was taken to the local jail. A defense lawyer wasn't listed.
