Montrezl Harrell allegedly had three pounds of marijuana in his car when he was pulled over in Kentucky a month ago. On May 12, Harrell was pulled over by a Kentucky state trooper because he was following the car in front of him too close.
Trooper Jesse Owens stated he “upon stop observed odor of marijuana” from the silver
2020 Honda Pilot that Harrell was driving, according to the citation. Harrell, Owens wrote in the report, “admitted to being in possession of marijuana and produced a small amount from his sweatpants.”
During a subsequent search of the vehicle, which the report states Harrell claims was rented, “three pounds of marijuana in vacuum sealed bags” were found in a backpack in the back seat, according to the citation. He’s been charged with trafficking less than five pounds of marijuana.
Possessing or trafficking eight or more ounces but less than five pounds of marijuana is punishable by 1-5 years in prison and a fine from $1,000 to $10,000.
