PERRY, Iowa (AP) — A Minnesota man has been arrested in central Iowa after officers say they found 2 pounds of cocaine in his car during a traffic stop, officials said.

The stop happened Thursday on Interstate 80 in Dallas County, television station KCCI reported. The sheriff’s office said Eddie Ponce, 32, of Maplewood, Minnesota, was stopped on suspicion of speeding. Court records show a drug-sniffing police dog later alerted to drugs inside the car, and officers say they found the cocaine, marijuana and $4,000 in cash inside the vehicle.

Ponce now faces several drug-related charged and was being held in the Dallas County Jail on a $50,000 bond. His preliminary hearing is set for Feb. 22.
