Around 12:43 a.m., Deputy Jared Dewey stopped a vehicle on Interstate 10 in Madison County for a faulty equipment violation.
While discussing the violation with the driver (who was identified as Khiry Brendon Bryant, 24, of Tallahassee) Deputy Dewey detected the odor of green, ‘unburnt’ marijuana emanating from inside the vehicle.
Deputy Dewey instructed Bryant to exit the vehicle. When questioned about the marijuana odor, Bryant stated that there had been marijuana in the vehicle earlier.
Deputy Dewey explained that he was going to conduct a probable cause search of the vehicle. Bryant then admitted that the vehicle contained two marijuana cigarettes.
During the probable cause search, Deputy Dewey located the two marijuana cigarettes concealed beneath the center console.
After searching further, Deputy Dewey located two cigarette packs concealed inside a toiletry bag. Both packs contained green marijuana. The toiletry bag also contained a digital scale along with several small plastic bags that are commonly used to package illegal narcotics. Bryant was arrested without incident and is facing charges of possession of marijuana over 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia.
