CHAMPLAIN -- A Canadian man was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly tried to bring 54 pounds of marijuana across the local border.

Clinton County Sheriff's deputies arrested Alain Gariepy after customs officials found the drugs allegedly hidden inside his vehicle.

The 34-year-old was taken into custody on a felony drug charge and is being held at the Clinton County Jail, unable to post $25,000 bail.

He will reappear in court at a later date to face the charge.
