Worthington Police officers initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle traveling on Minnesota 60 without a front license plate on Monday.

Jacob Marshall, 20, was identified as one of the occupants of the vehicle, along with two 17-year-old males. One of the juveniles was driving.

According to the complaint filed in Nobles County, the officer reported an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle, and marijuana “shake” on the backseat. When the officer asked if there was anything illegal in the vehicle, Marshall reportedly said he had several marijuana joints.

The occupants were asked to exit the vehicle so the officers could conduct a search. During this time, officers reportedly located a large amount of cash under the front passenger seat. A small container of THC wax was also reportedly found in the vehicle, as well as a cardboard box with air-sealed bags of marijuana and a backpack that contained multiple canisters of dispensary marijuana.

Marshall allegedly agreed to give a statement to officers and stated he had done a “drop off” in Mankato earlier. He told officers he was responsible for the marijuana and the juveniles had no knowledge of it. The cash that was found under the front passenger seat was reportedly from a sale in Mankato.

Marshall was placed under arrest and transported to the Nobles County Jail.

The two juveniles were also brought in and gave statements. The juvenile driver stated he was aware of the marijuana but was not sure how much of it there was. He had reportedly been told he would receive $200 for driving.

The air-sealed bags of marijuana from the cardboard box weighed approximately seven pounds. The cash from the sale in Mankato totaled $6,340.

If convicted, Marshall faces a maximum sentence of 20 years imprisonment, a $25,000 fine or both for the third-degree drug charge. Marshall was also charged with fifth-degree drug possession and fifth-degree drug sale, both of which carry a maximum sentence of five years imprisonment and/or a $10,000 fine.
