CAMDENTON, Mo. (KMIZ)

On Saturday night, a Camden County Sheriff’s deputy pulled over a vehicle in Macks Creek which led to 130 pounds of marijuana being seized.

A Camden County prosecutor has charged Kenneth Lamoreaux, 45, of Greeley, Co. with first-degree drug trafficking, possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and operating a vehicle by another that has not maintained insurance.

The deputy pulled Lamoreaux's vehicle over due to an expired out-of-state temporary license plate. The vehicle was emitting a strong odor of marijuana and the deputy advised the driver he was going to conduct a probable cause search.

The total weight of marijuana seized during the traffic stop was more than 130 pounds.

During the search, the deputy found several large black trash bags full of individually packaged baggies of what he suspected to be marijuana. The deputy recovered bags from the cargo compartment of the vehicle, and from where the spare tire would normally be stored. The deputy also recovered a firearm during the search.

Lamoreaux is being held in the Camden County Jail without bond. A bond hearing is scheduled for August 8.

Lamoreaux entered a not guilty plea according to online court records.

Lamoreaux does not have a defense attorney listed, according to online court records.
