The deputy detected the smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle. The driver, 24 year old Jacob Jordan, did seem quite right. He appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance. A search of Jordan’s vehicle produced containers with honey oil and some methamphetamine.

As a result, Jacob Jordan was taken into custody for drug related charges and booked into the Wayne Brown Correctional Facility.
