DEKALB — State police on Tuesday charged Elisantiago R. Rivero-Goitia, 25, and Miguelangel R. Gonzalez, 26, both of Utica, with felony second-degree criminal possession of marijuana.

Troopers said that about 7:30 p.m. on Route 11 in the town of DeKalb, Mr. Rivero-Goitia and Mr. Gonzalez were headed south in a 2003 Nissan Maxima when they were stopped during a DWI road check. During the check, troopers said, they found approximately 5 pounds of marijuana in a cooler after they were led to believe criminal activity was afoot and were granted permission to search the vehicle.

Both men were arraigned in Fowler Town Court and were sent to St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, where Mr. Rivero-Goitia is being held on $2,000 bail and Mr. Gonzalez is being held on $5,000 bail.
