A California man ended up with more than a speeding ticket after Rhode Island state troopers who pulled him over say they found 185 pounds of marijuana in his minivan.

Jiacheng Liu, 29, of San Francisco was pulled over for speeding on Interstate 95 in Warwick about 3 p.m. Friday and a subsequent search of his minivan uncovered 185 pounds of pot worth an estimated $368,800, as well as two boxes and a bag stuffed with more than 800 vials of hash oil worth about $40,000, Rhode Island state police said.

Liu was arrested on two counts of possessing a controlled substance with intent to deliver and delivering more than five kilos of marijuana.

He is expected to be arraigned tomorrow in Third Division District Court.
