Two men were arrested with more than four pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop Thursday in Sonoma County, according to the California Highway Patrol.

At about 11:20 a.m., a CHP officer on patrol spotted the passenger of a 1969 Chevrolet Impala not wearing a seatbelt near the Asti exit on southbound U.S. Highway 101.

The officer initiated a traffic stop and activated his emergency lights. The officer followed the car for about a mile until the driver pulled over near Geyserville Avenue.

The officer smelled marijuana coming from inside the Impala and conducted a search of the car. The search netted more than four pounds of processed marijuana packaged for sales, according to the CHP.

The driver, 20-year-old Sebastian Ceja, and the passenger, Jose Vitgen, 22, both of Ukiah, were arrested on suspicion of possession and transportation of marijuana for sales, according to the CHP.
