This week’s highlight of Byram P. D., we would like to introduce Mr. Terrus Willet.
Mr. Willet was stopped by officers for driving carelessly and improper equipment. When contact was made, officers could smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. It was later discovered that Mr. Willet was driving under the influence of a substance other than alcohol. He was arrested for DUI. Upon searching the vehicle, officers discovered a black duffel bag containing… guessed it, 4.88 lbs of a green leafy substance.
Mr. Willet was charged with Trafficking a Controlled Substance, DUI, Careless Driving, Driving While License Suspended, No Insurance, & No Tag Light.
