WEST BATON ROUGE, La. -

A U.S. Army Sergeant is behind bars in South Louisiana, after police say they found over 20 pounds of marijuana in his vehicle.

It happened about 3 a-m Sunday morning on Interstate 10, west of Hwy 415 in West Baton Rouge Parish.

That's where a Louisiana State Police trooper stopped 30-ear-old active duty Army Sgt. Horace Brown for a traffic violation.

 State Police say the trooper became suspicious and asked to search Brown's vehicle.

That's when authorities say they found approximately 23 pounds of pot hidden in a duffle bag.

Brown was arrested and charged with improper lane usage, and possession with intent to distribute.

He was booked into the West Baton Rouge Parish jail.
