According to authorities, if a Pasco man hadn't been pulled over for a traffic stop, he'd have made serious bank.

Officials say a Pasco man is in jail in Asheville, North Carolina after police discovered over 200lbs. of pot in his truck.

Asheville police say Bryan Watts was driving his 2004 Chevy pickup through Cherokee Tribal Land when he was pulled over. Why he was stopped was not revealed, but during the stop police found the dope.

Authorities say he was likely smuggling it from the Northwest because pot brings a much higher price on the East Coast than here--even on the Black Market.
