(VANCOUVER COLUMBIAN) — John Bishop, the former lead pastor of Vancouver’s Living Hope Church, is facing a federal charge in U.S. District Court in Southern California for allegedly trying to smuggle more than 280 pounds of marijuana into the country from Mexico.

The 54-year-old was arrested Dec. 11 after he was stopped about 5:25 a.m. by U.S. Customs and Border Protection while re-entering the country through the San Ysidro, Calif., port. Bishop reportedly told border patrol he was driving to Chula Vista, Calif., according to a probable cause affidavit filed in the case.

While conducting a routine inspection of Bishop’s gray Volkswagen Jetta, the officer found packages hidden in a wheel well. A narcotics detection canine was deployed and alerted officers to the undercarriage and trunk of the car, the affidavit states.
