PLAINFIELD TWP., Pa. -

A Monroe County motorist who was stopped after drifting over the double yellow line several times during a four-mile stretch of highway is facing drug charges following a search of his car, officials said.

Robert K. Mosner was pulled over at Bono Pizza, 143 Bangor Rd., Plainfield Twp., Northampton Co., at about 6:15 p.m. Monday, after he was seen weaving along Route 191 from the time he turned onto the highway from Sullivan Trail near Stockertown, Northampton Co., officials said.

Mosner told police he was drifting because he was eating fast food from Wendy's, and also admitted he had smoke marijuana earlier in the day, officials said.

While looking into Mosner's car, police came across a large amount of marijuana in a bag and had Mosner's red Kia towed to police headquarters, where it was searched, officials said.

Police found two large bags with a total of two pounds and two ounces of marijuana, as well as $1,288 in cash and a white pill holder with a yellow straw that contained white residue, officials said.

Mosner, 27, of 104 Lester Lane, Stroudsburg, was arraigned early Tuesday morning on charges of drug possession, possession with intent to deliver and driving on the wrong side of the road and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $35,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9:30 a.m. March 6.
