The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office said a traffic stop on Interstate 10 led to the discovery of more than 11 pounds of meth hidden in the vehicle.

Deputies stopped a yellow Nissan Pathfinder Monday for a traffic violation. Investigators said deputies then searched the vehicle and found the meth hidden in a compartment.

According to the sheriff's office, 21-year-old Jonathan Diaz of Anaheim, California resisted arrest after the drugs were found in his vehicle. He was arrested and charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting arrest.

Diaz is being held in the Baldwin County Corrections Center on $302,500 bond.
