Police found nearly three pounds of marijuana Wednesday afternoon during a traffic stop in Rock Hill.

Jermaine Jackson, 32, Rock Hill was arrested and charged with marijuana possession with intent to distribute.

Officers initially stopped Jackson for speeding on East Main Street, according to the report. But when police smelled marijuana, they asked him to step out of his vehicle.

When asked if any marijuana was in the car, Jackson told police there was a “unit” of marijuana — or about a pound, the report states.

Police found a total of 2.88 pounds of marijuana in his car stored in two one-gallon bags. One was recovered behind the driver’s seat and another was stored on the floor board of the seat.

Officers also seized more than $300 in cash and a mobile phone, according to the report.
