ASHE COUNTY, N.C. — An 18-year-old has been arrested after 5 pounds of marijuana were seized at a traffic stop earlier this month, according to the Ashe County Sheriff’s Office.

On May 7, a deputy patrolling the area of Jefferson noticed a vehicle that was making several traffic violations. That deputy then conducted a traffic stop and learned that Joshua Cordoba was driving on an indefinitely suspended license.

A search of the vehicle unveiled three concealed handguns, a large sum of money, over 5 pounds of marijuana, a baggie containing mushrooms, and several drug paraphernalia items.
