The man caught traveling through Brecksville with three-fourths of a pound of marijuana in his car was sentenced to three years in probation.
Cuyahoga Common Pleas Judge John Sutula sentenced Kevin K. Robinson Jr., 28, of Oakwood Village, Wednesday morning.
Robinson had pleaded guilty to drug trafficking, drug possession and possessing criminal tools in January.
Robinson was pulled over Sept. 19 for a routine speeding violation on Brecksville Road, but wound up facing felony charges after police discovered the marijuana in the car, along with six bundles of cash totaling $6,100.
As part of the plea agreement, Robinson forfeited the cash as well as a cell phone, according to a statement from the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office.
He was also charged with two misdemeanors: speeding and endangering a child, because his daughter was in the car. But those charges were dropped.
A report said officers who pulled over Robinson for speeding could smell fresh marijuana in the car.
Robinson said he was on his way to court for a previous speeding violation. Because he was on probation, police were able to search his car without a warrant and came up with nearly a pound of marijuana and the cash, bundled into packs of $1,000.
