DOUGLAS Co. Ga (WAOK/AJC)-A Riverdale man is in custody after a traffic stop in Douglas County led to the seizure of more than 100 pounds of marijuana.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said Lendell Henderson, 38, was arrested Wednesday night on I-20.
According to the Douglas County Sentinel, Deputy Ryan Cadwell became suspicious as he followed a Dodge Durango traveling west on I-20 and noticed the driver crossed the line at the side of the road several times.
Cadwell pulled the Durango over and got permission from the driver to search the vehicle, the Sentinel reported. When he did, he found five plastic trash bags filled with marijuana, the newspaper said.
Officials said the marijana totaled 103 pounds with a street value of as much as $300,000. Henderson told the deputy his destination was Birmingham. He was charged with marijuana trafficking and is being held without bond in the Douglas County Jail.
