A Vincennes man is facing drug charges following a routine traffic stop in Knox County early Tuesday morning.
When an Indiana State Police trooper pulled over a vehicle driven by Demencio Canchola, age 29, for a defective license plate, the trooper said he smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle.
According to authorities, a search of the vehicle led to the discovery of 435 grams of marijuana, 10 morphine pills and over $3,600 in cash.
Canchola was arrested for felony possession of a schedule II controlled substance and two misdemeanors for possession of marijuana and dealing marijuana. He was taken to the Knox County Jail pending posting of bond.
