Deputies pulled over a vehicle for a traffic violation on Reid Street at about 6 p.m. Deputies learned the driver's license was suspended and noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

In a search of the vehicle, deputies found more than 22 grams of marijuana and $13,000 in cash wrapped in rubber bands in separate stacks.
