A 29-year-old man was cited after trying to buy a snowmobile with marijuana over the weekend, Oregon State Police said.
Troopers said last week, Jason Owen contacted the owner of a snowmobile on Craigslist and asked if the owner would consider a pound of marijuana in trade for the vehicle.
The owner of the snowmobile was an Oregon State Trooper out of the Salem Area Command.
On Saturday, the trooper agreed to meet with Owen and discuss the trade at a gas station.
Several patrol vehicles initiated a traffic stop and the trooper identified himself and told Owen he was committing a crime.
State Police said Owen had one and a half pounds of marijuana in his vehicle.
Owen was cited and released for adult possession of marijuana, adult delivery of marijuana and driving while suspended-misdemeanor.
A 26-year-old passenger was not charged during the incident.
