Just after midnight, Indiana State Police stopped a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer driven by Cameron for failure to signal a turn and improper display of a license plate, police said. The vehicle was traveling north on U.S. 41 near Helen Avenue, authorities said.

  During the stop, police noticed the driver appeared very nervous and the interior of the vehicle smelled of marijuana, according to Indiana State Police.

Police conducted a search and found approximately one-half pound of marijuana concealed in a plastic bucket in the cargo area of the vehicle, authorities said.

Cameron was incarcerated in the Vigo County Jail.
