Two men from Johnson City, Tennessee, have been arrested on drug charges after a traffic stop early in the afternoon on May 7. The men, ages 38 and 42, were stopped for traffic violations in what Gordon County Sheriff's Department deputies described as a suspicious vehicle.
The deputies who stopped the car were assigned to the Community Crime Prevention Unit and when they approached the vehicle, one deputy allegedly smelled an odor of marijuana coming from inside the car. The deputies searched the vehicle and located a backpack. Inside was reportedly more than a pound of marijuana. In addition, deputies allegedly found several thousands of dollars in cash.
