• On the evening of Jan. 6, an officer noticed a vehicle speeding in a 25-mph zone on Highway 301, and patrol car’s radar confirmed the driver was traveling at 41 mph. The officer initiated a traffic stop, informed the female driver the reason for the stop, and asked her for her information. The officer noticed a slight odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle, and the assisting officer confirmed the odor as marijuana.

The officer ran her information through dispatch. It came back that she had a warrant for her in Effingham County, Georgia, and also that her license was suspended. While dispatch confirmed the driver’s warrant, the officer checked her driver’s history and discovered she had a previous driving under suspension conviction.

The vehicle’s insurance status was not able to be determined because the subject was driving a vehicle in her mother’s name, but the officer was able to determine the tag on the vehicle was valid. The driver and her boyfriend admitted to smoking some marijuana earlier in the day, and upon inspection of the vehicle, no evidence of marijuana was found.
