Police arrested a man they say had more than 11 pounds of pot hidden inside a pillow.

He was on a Greyhound bus that was searched by police in Lamar on Monday.

A drug dog alerted on an empty seat that had a jacket and pillow on it. Once officers got a warrant, they looked inside the pillow and say they found several wrapped bricks of marijuana.

Police arrested 35-year-old Jason Ramirez of Denver.

Officers say Ramirez denied being on the bus, but the bus driver was holding a bus ticket in his name.

Ramirez is facing a charge of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.
