BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Nearly 3 pounds of marijuana were found Wednesday night in the trunk of a car that was stopped for speeding in the Town of Bath, police said.
Bath Patrolman Dennis Jenkins said he stopped a car for speeding in a 25-mph zone about 9:30 p.m.
The driver, Stephen Wayne Good Jr., 37, of Frederick, Md., refused to have his vehicle searched by Jenkins, who called Morgan County Sheriff's Department Deputy Seth Place to assist him with a police dog.Â
"The K-9 detected the odor of a narcotic on the passenger side door," Jenkins said.
Place searched the vehicle and found bags of marijuana in the trunk, a set of digital scales and a box of Zig Zag rolling papers, according to the criminal complaint. Inside the car, two syringes were found, and an empty beer can with burned marijuana residue on it, according to the complaint.Â
