Fresno police seized about three pounds of marijuana Sunday night after officers pulled over a man driving without a front license plate on his car, Sgt. Tony Bustos said.
After making the vehicle stop, an officer noted the strong smell of marijuana and learned that the man was on felony probation.
A search of the car yielded the drugs and scales. The driver, identified as Andrew Barton, 18, was booked into the Fresno County Jail.
