Two out-of-state residents remained behind bars Thursday in the Lauderdale County jail after being caught with about 8 pounds of marijuana in their U-Haul the day before.
Bobby V. Ellick, 39, 5234 Rex Ave., San Diego, Calif., and Adrian M. Clark, 40, 2235 Raleigh Drive, Augusta, Ga., were arrested on Interstate 20/59 in Meridian on Wednesday by the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics.
Ellick and Clark were each charged with possession of more than a kilo of marijuana in a motor vehicle.
Police said the two were reportedly on their way from California to Georgia. Mississippi Department of Transportation law enforcement officers found the marijuana after they stopped the truck for a routine paperwork inspection.
Detective Deano Harper, a Meridian Police Department spokesman, said his department's K-9 unit was called to the scene to assist in the bust.
