On March 5, a Jones County deputy and K-9 Ella conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle without a rear license plate. The deputy noticed an odor of marijuana from the vehicle, officials said. Another unit provided assistance and the deputy conducted a search, officials said.

Authorities found a variety of smoking devices and approximately 50 vape pen cartridges containing THC oil, officials said. The search also revealed prescription medications. 

Investigators determined Fox and Brigance were traveling to Florida to sell the items located in the vehicle.

"Just a friendly reminder, while the use of marijuana is becoming more commonplace, it is still illegal," Jones County Sheriff R.N. "Butch" Reece said.
