UNION, SC (FOX Carolina) -
The Union County sheriff said one of the biggest marijuana suppliers in city of Union was arrested Friday.
Sheriff David Taylor said deputies conducted a traffic stop because of an illegally tinted car and when they realized who the driver was, they called in narcotics officers because of tips they had received.
Deputies said they had received several complaints that the driver, Demorris Davis, 21, had been selling marijuana. When they asked if there was any marijuana inside the vehicle both Davis and a passenger said no and gave consent to search.
Officers found black backpack in the trunk that had several plastic bags, digital scales and a quantity of marijuana inside.
Both Davis and the passenger, Keith Hardy, 25, were arrested and taken to the Union County Jail. While changing into jail clothes, deputies said they found more marijuana on Hardy, hidden in his underwear.
Because of the complaints about Davis, deputies said they went to search a home on Cabin Street where he had been staying with his grandmother.
Deputies found more marijuana and money inside the home along with Davis' driver's license. They said his grandmother became irate and accused deputies of "planting drugs" in her home.
Davis' grandmother, Inez Hall, 73, was also arrested and charged in connection with the weed found inside her home.
In total, deputies said they found more than a pound of weed at the home. All three subjects were charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
Davis was also issued a summons for illegal window tint. Deputies said this was his third drug offense.
