BLOOMINGTON — A Clearlake, Calif. man has been charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver after a stop on Interstate 74.

Authorities said Joel Ziegler, 42, was stopped Saturday by McLean County sheriff's deputies for following another car too closely on Interstate 74. About 3.5 pounds of marijuana was found in six plastic bags in a spare tire during a search of the car, and he told officers he was taking it to Pennsylvania to sell, police said.

Ziegler was jailed in lieu of posting $20,025.
