Boulder City Police seized more than 10 pounds of marijuana early Friday morning after stopping a car for speeding on Nevada Highway.

The driver, identified as Winston Aarons, has been charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, obstructing a public officer, resisting arrest and unlawful possession of forged identification in connection with the incident. He is also facing citations for speeding, no proof of insurance violations and driving without a license.

Records also indicate there is an outstanding immigration-related warrant out for Aarons, authorities said.

Police said an officer noticed a silver Dodge Intrepid traveling over the speed limit at Nevada Highway and Yucca Street about 3:45 a.m. and stopped the vehicle. Aarons provided a driver's license and proof of insurance that didn’t belong to him, authorities said.

He said the vehicle belonged to a girlfriend, police said.

The officer noticed the car was freshly vacuumed and had several air fresheners, police said. A K-9 unit was called to investigate.

Aarons then ran from the scene and jumped over the wall at the Rebel Gas Station, 1665 Nevada Highway. Officers pursued him and arrested him after a short struggle.

He was taken to Boulder City Hospital for an ankle injury and transported to the Clark County Detention Center.
