Pa. police: Driver hid pot as Christmas presents
STATE COLLEGE (AP) – Pennsylvania State Police said they found 20 pounds of marijuana in boxes wrapped as Christmas presents inside a minivan after a traffic stop.
The Centre Daily Times reported that 38-year-old Randy Jesus Valdivia, of Surfside, Fla., faces felony drug charges after the stop on Interstate 80 near State College.
Police said they became suspicious after Valdivia was stopped Thursday afternoon, and got him to agree to a search.

Online court records said he was taken to the local jail. A defense lawyer wasn’t listed.
