ROWANCOUNTY, N.C. -- A Georgia man was busted with four pounds of high-grade marijuana Tuesday morning, according to the Rowan County Sheriff's Office.

Around 5 a.m., officers conducted a traffic stop on I-85. Officers say they quickly learned the driver, 39-year-old Alfred Benjamin Morgan, did not have a driver's license and had three outstanding warrants.

Once officers secured a warrant to search the vehicle, four pounds of what authorities called high-grade marijuana was found in the trunk. The Sheriff's Office says the pot has a street value of $16,000.

Morgan was taken in to custody and charged with one count each of possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and no operator license, along with three counts of failure to appear for no operators license. His bond was set at $12,335.
