GALESBURG, Ill. (AP) — Authorities in western Illinois say they've seized around 145 pounds of marijuana from a 68-year-old West Virginia man passing through the area.

Galesburg Police say the value of the drugs is between $300,000 and $500,000.

WGIL-AM reports (http://bit.ly/1cs23B1) that officers stopped David G. Joseph Monday on Interstate 74. And after a K-9 unit was brought in, the marijuana was allegedly found in the SUV he was driving.

Joseph faces multiple charges, including cannabis trafficking. He's currently being held in Knox County Jail on $150,000 bond. He's due in court again Monday.

There was no public telephone listing for a David G. Joseph in West Virginia.
