HENRICO COUNTY, Va -- A traffic stop Thursday led to a big drug bust at a condominium off Staples Mill Road, according to police.

Earlier in the evening an officer pulled over a female driver and arrested her. Police got enough information during that arrest to warrant probable cause to search a residence at The Hamlet condos,  located at Dumbarton and Staples Mill Road.

Police cruisers lined the street, witnesses said.

During the raid, which ended around 9:30 p.m., police sources said they recovered approximately five pounds of marijuana, other drug paraphernalia, and a gun.

A man was in the condo and he was arrested.

He has not been processed yet, so his name has not been released.
