FRANKLINTON -- Police arrested a Sanford man they allege was transporting more than 150 grams of marijuana.
Zackery W. Hamilton, 20, was charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, maintaining a vehicle for the sale of a controlled substance, and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.
According to authorities, during the early morning hours of May 7, officers spotted a speeding sport utility vehicle heading south on U.S. 1 and conducted a traffic stop.
Officers on scene recognized the odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle and also gained consent to search the vehicle.
Officers seized 154.2 grams of marijuana, individually wrapped baggies of marijuana and digital scales.
The arrest, said Franklinton Police Chief John Green, was the result of a joint effort by the Youngsville Police Department and the Franklin County Sheriff's Office.
Hamilton was placed in the Franklin County jail in lieu of an $11,000 bond. He is next slated to appear in court on Sept. 22.
