Clement Hunter, 30, was awaiting arraignment on Monday following his arrest on drug charges, authorities said.
When he was pulled over, the 513 pounds of marijuana stuffed into large garbage bags was partly visible inside his minivan, police said.
He faces 50 counts of felony possession of marijuana as well as charges of reckless endangerment and fleeing officers.
The source of the marijuana and Hunter’s destination were still under investigation, police said.
