Three Santa Rosa men were arrested last weekend near Ukiah after authorities said they found about 50 pounds of illegal weed in their vehicle.

The California Highway Patrol pulled over a Blue Hummer H2 about 11 p.m. Aug. 24 after seeing it swerve over a solid white line on Highway 101 just north of North State Street, said California Highway Patrol-Ukiah spokesperson Olegario Marin. An officer spoke with the driver, later identified as Jose Bribiessca-Armenta, who showed signs of intoxication, officials said.

Authorities searched the SUV and found cannabis without the required licensing and paperwork.

Bribiessca-Armenta and the two passengers, Jorge Lozano-Casillas and Anthony Escutia-Martinez, were arrested, Marin said in an email.

The three men were booked into the Mendocino County jail on suspicion of transporting and having marijuana to sell without a license and conspiracy. Bribiessca-Armenta was also suspected of driving under the influence.
