GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

More than a hundred pounds of marijuana, headed to Gulfport for Spring Break, was seized during a traffic stop Thursday night. 

Gulfport police say the truck carrying the drugs was stopped on Interstate 10 near the 33-mile marker because of a traffic offense. Investigators said the driver, 35-year-old Keandre Marks, consented to a search, and that's when they found 109 lbs. of pot stashed away in the vehicle. 

During the investigation, it was learned the drugs were destined for Gulfport to be sold during the spring break event. 

Marks was arrested and charged with conspiracy to distribute drugs. He is being held at the Harrison County Jail, and also faces a probation violation charge.
