SALEM, Ore. — The Marion County Sheriff’s Office made a routine traffic stop on I-5 Wednesday afternoon and ended up seizing over two pounds of marijuana from two convicted felons.
Deonta Broussard of Seattle, WA and Dominique Turner of San Francisco, CA were stopped after police clocked them going 86 MPH in a 60 MPH zone. Police say they smelled a strong odor of marijuana and after searching the car found two vacuum-sealed bags of marijuana, notes indicating the two were involved in drug trafficking, as well as small amounts of the drug on their person.
Both men have prior convictions. Broussard has prior felonies for possession of machine guns, theft, and selling drugs. Turner has a prior conviction for possessing stolen property.
In the car was Broussard’s six-year-old daughter, who is now under the care of the Oregon Department of Human Services. Broussard told police that he was picking up his daughter from California for a visit. She will be returned to her mother in California.
