Driving dirty wasn't the best idea for a Plainfield man on his way to the Big Apple.

Aliu Burim, 28, was arrested on Monday night after police allegedly found 69 pounds of marijuana in his 2010 GMC Yukon. After being pulled over for a lane violation in Ohio, a drug-sniffing dog led police to the stash valued at $350,000.

He and two people traveling with him are charged with felony possession of marijuana, which is punishable up to 10 years in prison, according to Ohio State Police.
