Khalid Sadiyq Ahmad, 37, of Waynesboro was arrested Nov. 2 and charged with possession of more than five pounds of marijuana, with intent to distribute, according to Galax Police Chief Rick Clark.
Police Officer Chris Hines stopped Ahmad in his rental vehicle last Friday, shortly after midnight. After observation, he requested assistance from Officer Jacob Vaughan and police canine Dundja, who alerted on the vehicle.
The search turned up more than five pounds of marijuana hidden in a compartment inside the trunk, Clark said. The street value was estimated at $24,000.
Ahmad is being held without bond at the New River Valley Regional Jail, pending appearance in the Galax General District Court.
