Pennsylvania State Police say they found the presence of marijuana in boxes wrapped as Christmas presents that were recovered from inside a minivan after an interstate traffic stop.

The Centre Daily Times reported Friday that 38-year-old Randy Jesus Valdivia of Surfside, Fla., faces felony drug charges after the stop on Interstate 80 near State College.

Police say they became suspicious after Valdivia was stopped Thursday afternoon, and got him to agree to a search.
