Summerville Police Make Arrests After Traffic Stop

A traffic stop last week ended in the arrest of two men charged with drug possession.

Summerville Police said that they stopped a vehicle with a drive-out tag to check proof of ownership.  When they walked up to the driver’s window they could smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.  Both the driver and the passenger denied smoking marijuana.  Police asked to search the vehicle and the driver asked, “What for?”.  The officer explained that there was a strong smell of marijuana.

After getting consent to search, officers found marijuana and evidence of a white powdery substance believed to be methamphetamine inside the vehicle.  Officers also found a men’s underwear bag that contained a set of digital scales.

Fifty-four-year-old Pierre Howard Price and thirty-one-year-old Cody Landon Boyd were both taken into custody and booked into the Chattooga County Jail on drug charges.
