Marijuana and sawed off shotgun were confiscated during a traffic stop by the Lee County Sheriff's office.
LEESBURG — About seven miles north of Leesburg on U.S. Highway 19, two men in a 2000 Honda Accord with Alabama tags made an improper lane change and ended up in jail, a Lee County Sheriff's official said.
Deputies found a Mossberg 12-gauge, sawed-off shotgun and about five ounces of marijuana bagged for sale in the Accord at about 1:30 p.m. Thursday, said Capt. Keith Houston.
According to sheriff's reports, Kelsie Brown, 33, of Prattville, Ala., and Darryl Tucker, 23, of Albany were arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a sawed-off shotgun during the commission of a felony and possession of tools for the commission of a crime.
Tucker was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, the reports added. Both men were in Lee County Jail Friday afternoon.
"Our interdiction team made the stop," Houston said. "Brown gave us a little trouble at the stop. He didn't use the shotgun. It had one in the chamber and three in the magazine."
