WINDHAM, N.H. (WHDH) - A traffic stop on Interstate 93 in New Hampshire on Tuesday morning ended with one arrest and the seizure of a “large quantity” of marijuana, officials said.

Troopers patrolling the southbound side of the highway in Windham around 9:30 a.m. stopped 21-year-old Michael Melo, of Manchester, for an inspection violation, according to New Hampshire State Police.

During the course of the stop, a large quantity of marijuana was said to be found and seized from Melo’s vehicle.

Melo was arrested and booked on a felony level charge of possession with the intent to distribute.

He has since been released on bail.

Melo is slated to be arraigned in Rockingham Superior Court on April 12.
