PULASKI COUNTY, Va. – A Radford man is behind bars after troopers found illegal drugs and weapons in his car during a traffic stop in Pulaski County Saturday.

Just after 3 p.m. Virginia State Police Trooper J.M. Nunley pulled over a 2011 Nissan Titan on Route 11 for not having a state inspection sticker on its windshield.

During the traffic stop, Nunley said he detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. Searching the vehicle, Nunley found five pounds of marijuana, six concealed firearms, thousands of dollars in cash and illegal prescription drugs. The driver, 32-year-old William T. Munsey IV, of Radford, was arrested without incident.

The investigation also resulted in a search warrant for Munsey’s residence, where officers seized more marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Munsey is being held at the New River Regional Jail without bond on six counts of possessing a concealed weapon without a valid concealed weapon permit, one count of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, one count of possession of a Schedule I/II narcotic without a valid prescription, one count of possession of a Schedule I/II narcotic while in possession of a firearm, one summonses for failing to have a state inspection sticker and one summonses for failing to wear a seatbelt.
