A Cincinnati man was pulled over in Bellevue, and police say the car was loaded with drugs.

Police say an officer stopped a white SUV that was going 80 mph in a 70 mph zone on I-40 east.

The driver and renter of the SUV, 41-year-old Anthony Reeves, told the officer that he was driving back from Texas, where he had driven to box. Reeves consented to a search of the vehicle.

Police say they found seven duct-taped packages of marijuana - approximately 10.5 pounds - inside a suitcase and that Reeves admitted it was his.

Reeves is charged with possession of marijuana for resale. Bond has been set at $25,000.
