YEMASSEE, S.C. (WSAV) — Yemassee Police Department (YPD) officers found a trunk full of marijuana, a handgun and $4,000 in cash.
Officers found the pot stored in two suitcases, a Smith & Wesson .40 caliber handgun and more than $4,000 in cash. Some of the marijuana was prepacked for sale, according to YPD.
YPD said officers conducted a traffic stop on I-95 when they noticed the driver acting nervous.
