The odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle led to a probable cause search and the discovery of a stolen firearm in the passenger front seat pouch near the backseat.

All three were taken to Hopkins County Jail and charged with Unlawful Possession of a firearm.

At the jail Braswelll placed something in his mouth. When asked to open his mouth, a green leafy substance was noted. He was ordered to spit it out. The substance was found to be marijuana. Braswell was able to
