Local authorities have seized more than two ounces of marijuana and an undisclosed amount of cash as the result of a traffic stop this past weekend.
The seizure of drugs and cash also led to the arrest of a 17-year-old teenager.
The suspect was identified as Tremayne Bernard Bradshaw, of the 100 block of Kennedy Court, Thomson, according to a report filed by Thomson Police Department Sgt. John James. Mr. Bradshaw was charged with Violation of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act for possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of drug-related objects.
Following his arrest, he was taken to the McDuffie County Law Enforcement Center.
Mr. Bradshaw, a passenger in a car that was stopped for a suspected traffic offense, was arrested last Saturday, July 17 on Forrest Clary Drive.
Aside from the marijuana that was discovered, police also seized a set of scales, commonly used to weigh narcotics, Sgt. James mentioned in his report.
Mr. Bradshaw reportedly admitted that the drugs and other items taken as evidence by police belonged to him.
Sgt. James was assisted by fellow Officer Matt Massey.
