A 24-year-old New Hampshire man was arrested in Oregon last weekend after police said he was caught transporting more than 30 pounds of marijuana in a motor home.

Oregon State Police said they stopped Matthew S. Balukas, 24, of Barrington last Saturday for a traffic violation along Highway 140, about two miles west of Lakeview, Ore. A police drug-detection dog discovered about 33 pounds individually wrapped one-pound packages of marijuana concealed inside the 1993 Ford motor home.
