Police say troopers stopped the man’s vehicle for speeding early Saturday morning on Interstate 195 in East Providence. A check of his Florida license showed that it had been suspended. Police searched his car and found 903 Oxycodone pills and 56 morphine pills.

Thirty-six-year-old Brandon Damon Lee of Lauderhill, Fla. was arrested and charged with possession with intent to deliver and driving on a suspended license. He was held over the weekend pending a bail review scheduled for Monday. Lee could not be reached for comment.
