BOARDMAN, Ohio - A man was arrested last week after investigators allegedly found 4.5 pounds of marijuana laced Rice Krispie treats in his vehicle.

Patrick Altier, 22, of Boardman, Ohio, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and trafficking of marijuana. He was also charged with OVI, according to a release from the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
