CALEDONIA -- A 56 year-old man from Caledonia is facing drug charges after police find $12,000 worth of "high-quality" marijuana in his car and home. 

The Racine Journal Times says police pulled over Vincent Cain on Thursday and found 281 grams -- just over a half-pound -- of marijuana. Police said it was high quality and two to three times more valuable than regular pot.

Police executed a search warrant on his house in Caledonia, where they found a backpack and a wooden box containing more bags of marijuana. In total, the complait said Cain had nearly a pound of marijuana in his posession. 

Vincent Cain was charged with possession with intent to deliver and maintaining a drug trafficking place. If convicted, he faces up to 9 and a half years in prison and over $20,000 in fines.
