Traffic stop leads to drug arrest

Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that on Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 2:10 p.m., Deputy Martin Morris was conducting a routine patrol on SW Grand Street in Greenville. Deputy Morris stopped a blue Sedan driven by Eric Morris, 24, of Greenville for committing a traffic violation.

While taking enforcement action, Deputy Morris learned that Eric Morris did not have a valid driver’s license. Deputy Morris also observed a clear plastic bag protruding from the waist band of Eric Morris. Deputy Morris retrieved the plastic bag and found that it contained nine smaller plastic bags of marijuana.

The smaller bags of marijuana were packaged in a manner that is common with the sale of marijuana. Eric Morris was placed under arrest without incident and transported to the Madison County Jail. He was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell and no valid driver’s license.
