A Grand Forks man was arrested after he rolled his car while trying to run from police. A stolen gun, marijuana and over $11,000 cash was found in his car, an affidavit for his arrest said.

Brian Bernard Jones, 39, was arrested Friday and charged with three felonies and three misdemeanors.

On Thursday, Jones was pulled over for not stopping at a stop sign on County Road 1 and U.S. Highway 81, an affidavit for his arrest said. He did not have insurance and the car smelled like marijuana, court documents said. Jones fled when an officer told him he was being detained, and he lost control of his vehicle, hit a railroad crossing arm and rolled into the ditch, the affidavit said.

Police found nearly 11 grams of marijuana in the car and $11,000 cash. The affidavit said a stolen handgun was found fully loaded in the car, also. Jones is a felon and not allowed to own a firearm.

He's scheduled to appear in court Nov. 7 and could face five years in prison if convicted.
