The vehicle was stopped and the officer contacted the driver, John Thanh Vo. During the investigation, John Thanh Vo gave officers permission to search his vehicle.
The search revealed a large quantity of marijuana in the trunk. Further investigation led the officers to a house on the 2100 block of Pedro Avenue in Milpitas.

The marijuana and cultivation equipment was seized as evidence and John Thanh Vo was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for Cultivation of Marijuana, Possession of Marijuana for Sales, and transportation of Marijuana.
