Marney, in arrest reports, claimed he could smell a marijuana odor emitting from the SUV while speaking to the driver, identified in arrest reports as 33-year-old Shantel Jane Lewis-Charland of Cumby. Consequently, Marney conducted a probable cause search of the SUV. The deputy reported finding a blue cotton bag contained about 8 Mason jars and a large bag with a green, leafy substance he believed to be marijuana during the search.

The 33-year-old Cumby woman was booked into jail at 12:14 a.m. Jan. 1, 2021, on a felony possession of four ounces or more but less than 5 pounds of marijuana charge, according to arrest reports. She remained in Hopkins County jail late Saturday morning, Jan. 2, 2021 on the charge, according to jail reports.
