Police arrested a man who said he is from Mexico because they found a large quantity of marijuana and cash inside the vehicle he was driving during a traffic stop in Beechview, Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard said on Monday.

The man, who was carrying no identification or proof of residency, was stopped shortly after 9 p.m. Saturday when an officer spotted him speeding despite heavy pedestrian traffic on Broadway Avenue, Richard said. The speed limit is 25 mph.

Police found marijuana in sealed bags inside a computer bag along with $13,300 in cash, Richard said. Police found a bullet but no weapons, she said.

The man — possibly known as Alejandro Hernandez or Alejandro Fernandez, 22, of Brookline — was charged with reckless driving, possession with intent to deliver marijuana and related crimes, Richard said.
