Allen County police are searching for a man charged in connection with a traffic stop that yielded 14 pounds of marijuana.

At about 2:20 p.m. March 6 an Allen County Sheriff's Department officer and his K-9 partner were patrolling the area of Paulding Road and Wayne Trace. While using his radar the officer clocked a silver Dodge Charger traveling 46 mph in a 30 mph zone, according to Allen County Sheriff's Department spokesman Cpl. Jeremy Tinkel. The officer stopped the vehicle and talked to the driver, whom police identified as Tommy McDuffie, 30, of Lima, Ohio. The officer reported that he smelled marijuana coming from inside the vehicle, according to a news release. He then got his K-9 from his vehicle and ran the dog around the car. The dog gave a positive alert signal for the presences of narcotics, according to the release. The officer then searched the vehicle and found the drug in the trunk.

McDuffie faces a count of dealing marijuana, a Class C felony. He is currently wanted. Anyone with information regarding his location is asked to call the Allen County Sheriff's Department at 1-260-449-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-260-436-STOP (1-260-436-7867).
