Oleg Spektorov of 499 Summer St., Boston was charged with aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs, a felony, and unlawful possession of a schedule X drug, a misdemeanor.

Auburn police found him in possession of a total of 41.6 pounds of marijuana, some hashish oil and materials for making hashish oil, police said.

He was stopped by police after officers on patrol spotted him driving with inoperative tail lights. As officers approached the car, they detected “the overwhelming odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.”

Police said Spektorov told police he was a medical marijuana caregiver, but he was unable to explain why he had such a large amount of marijuana, as well as some hashish oil and other items used to manufacture hashish oil.

He was released on Sunday after posting $25,000 bail. He is due back in court on Dec. 30.
