A traffic stop in the town of Rembert about 15 miles northwest of Sumter has yielded more than $27,000 worth of marijuana, officials say.
Narcotics agents conducting surveillance in the area Monday stopped a black Chevrolet Impala on Springhill Road, according to a statement released by the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Monday.
After K-9 dogs indicated the vehicle, six pounds of marijuana were found inside the car. The marijuana has an estimated street value of $27,180, according to the statement.
Tyquan Jamal Gary, 25, of Rembert, was arrested in connection with the stop and charged with possession with the intent to deliver. Gary was taken to the Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center.
