A Malden woman was arrested on Route 1 in Saugus earlier this week after police allegedly discovered five pounds of marijuana in her vehicle.
Darne Ricci, 22, was pulled over by police for excessively tined windows and a missing front license plate.
The officer reportedly smelled marijuana in the car and asked Ricci to surrender any drugs in the vehicle. Police said Ricci handed over "a few small bags," which eventually lead to the discovery of five, individually-wrapped pounds of marijuana.
Ricci faces charges of possession with intent to distribute a class D substance.
