WESTPORT — A man from Brooklyn, N.Y. was caught with more than a pound of marijuana after being pulled over for speeding, police said.

A Westport patrolman was traveling southbound on I-95 when he glimpsed another vehicle traveling more than 20 mph over the speed limit, according to police reports.

After pulling the speeding driver over at Exit 17, the officer reported smelling a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle, at which point a K9 unit was called to the scene and the driver — 22-year-old Ken Alexander, of Brooklyn, N.Y. — was patted down by police.

During the search, police found plastic bag filled with marijuana on Alexander. The K9 unit also detected a vacuum-sealed bag filled with over a pound of marijuana hidden in the suspect’s vehicle, along with packaging materials, police said.

Alexander was charged with the sale of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance. He was unable to post the $10,000 bond, and he was arraigned in court on Oct. 20.
