CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — A trooper with Oregon State Police seized more than 16 pounds of heroin during a traffic stop on I-5 north of Central Point earlier this week, according to a statement from the agency.

Just before 10 a.m. on Tuesday, a trooper from OSP's Central Point Area Command stopped the driver of a 2014 Nissan Sentra for Unlawful Lane Change and Failure to Drive with Lane on I-5 near milepost 36.

"The Trooper noticed signs of criminal activity and a consent search of the vehicle was conducted," the agency said.

A search of the car reportedly found about 16.3 pounds of "suspected heroin" hidden in the gas tank of the vehicle.

OSP identified the driver as 33-year-old Victor Aguilar of Outlook, Washington. He was lodged at the Jackson County Jail on a charge of Unlawful Possession and Delivery of Heroin.

Aguilar is no longer on the jail log and has presumably been released pending court proceedings.

Oregon State Police said it was assisted by the Department of Homeland Security Investigations' Medford Office.
