Authorities say a traffic stop in Chambers County ended with the discovery of more than $20,000 worth of marijuana and the arrest of two men.

It happened around 1:30pm Tuesday on Interstate 10, just east of Jenkins Road.

According to the Chambers County Sheriff's Office, the suspects, Derail Curtis Hudson, 26, and Arliss Oneal Hudson, 27, gave deputies conflicting stories, so officers asked to search their rented Nissan truck.

During the search, about 11 pounds of marijuana and a Glock 9mm pistol were discovered in the car. The pot is estimated to be worth about $24,000.

Both Hudsons were arrested on charges of possession of marijuana and unlawfully carrying a weapon. A total of $19,000 bond has been set for each suspect.
