Two Milledgeville, Ga., men were arrested and charged with transporting marijuana through Harlem early Monday.

About 9:45 a.m., a Harlem Department of Public Safety officer tried to stop a 2002 Honda Accord on Milledgeville Road (U.S. Highway 78/278). The driver, later identified as Thaddius Hall, 21, fled for more than a mile before stopping near the McDuffie County line, according to Chief Gary Jones.

The car smelled like marijuana, Jones said, so officers called in a canine unit from the Grovetown Department of Public Safety. Officers found about a pound of marijuana packaged for distribution, according to Jones.

Hall and his passenger, Douglas P. Jones, 23, were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Hall also was charged with violation of a permit, driving too fast for conditions, following too closely, fleeing and attempting to elude, and a seat belt violation, according to the chief.

Both suspects were being held Monday night in the Columbia County Detention Center.

Wonder what the original

Wonder what the original probable cause was to stop them? I looked for speeding in the charges (as in clocked), as that is usually the reason.

OK, UGA has a nationally

OK, UGA has a nationally recognized agriculture program, right? It seems to me that some of those brainy college kids over there could develop a strain of pot that produced "new car" smell.
(to those of you with sense of humor arrested development: This is a joke. I am giving you permission to laugh, smile, chuckle, tee hee, etc and have a wonderful day)

Speeding

NocNoc told us the other day that Harlem is aggressive on speeders through town.

southern2 took the words right out of my mouth!

I immediately thought of those two fools Cheech and Chong! They made some goofy movies that were just fun to watch and I'm sure they enjoyed some weed along the way! :)

Is it BAD GENES or something?

That when people are doing something illegal they send up SMOKE Signals and Flares, by doing something that calls attention to themselves?
