DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. -- Two men were arrested Friday morning during a traffic stop by Oregon State Police (OSP) along Interstate 5 about ten miles south of Canyonville when troopers say they found over 6 pounds of marijuana inside their vehicle.
One of them is Daniel Gary Deane, 24, of Corvallis, who was arrested in February by OSP for allegedly having marijuana and large amount of cash.
According to Lieutenant Doug Ladd from the OSP Roseburg area command, at about 7:30 a.m., an OSP trooper stopped a 2003 GMC Yukon sport utility vehicle for a traffic violation northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 88.
The two occupants where identified as Deane and driver Ali Husain Alnasir, 26, of Monmouth.
Ladd says that a subsequent investigation with the assistance of an OSP drug detection canine led to the discovery of approximately 6 1/2 pounds of marijuana and other evidence inside the vehicle.
Estimated value of the seized marijuana is $16,000.
Both men were arrested and lodged in the Douglas County Jail for Unlawful Possession and Delivery of a Controlled Substance.
Harney County Sheriff David Glerup said Deane was stopped for doing 86 mph in a 55 mph zone west of Burns back in late February, and says deputies found about 10 pounds marijuana in the vehicle.
They also say there was a powdered substance that is believed to be Ecstacy. Deane's vehicle and over $4,500 in cash was seized in that incident.
Deane played three years for the Beavers (2008-2011). He redshirted in 2007 after transferring from Utah.
Deane's career-high with OSU came against Nevada on November 22, 2008, with 19 points.
He saw action in 13 games as a senior in the 2010-11 season while averaging 0.8 points, 1.5 rebounds in 3.0 minutes per game.

His season-high performance came against the Ducks in the Civil War with five points and five rebounds.
His father Greg Deane played in the NBA for the Utah Jazz.
