On 06/12/2022 while on patrol in the area of Doc Hyde Rd. I observed a silver in color sedan, Georgia Tag [REDACTED], turn around at the stop sign at McCoy Rd. The sedan then traveled East on Doc Hyde towards Hwy 61. I observed the passenger not wearing a seatbelt and the vehicle fail to maintain its lane on the roadway. I then activated my emergency lights to initiate the traffic stop. The vehicle then pulled to the side of the road across from White Oak Dr. As the vehicle was pulling over, I observed the passenger moving around and leaning towards the back of the vehicle in the center of the car.
I approached the vehicle and smelled a strong odor of both green and burnt marijuana coming from inside the vehicle, I spoke to the driver, and she stated, she knew why I was stopping her. I asked for her license, which she gave me and she was identified as Tyra Boyd. I then asked the passenger for his license and he was identified as Jordan Spinks. I went to my unit and requested another unit for back up reference to a vehicle search. Dep. Hooper arrived and called Boyd out of the vehicle. I asked Boyd if there was any marijuana inside the car and I advised her that I could smell it from inside the vehicle. Boyd stated that she didn’t think there was any in the car and that she had smoked earlier.
I then requested Spinks to exit the vehicle, which he did. I began to search the vehicle and I opened the glove box, immediately in front of where Spinks was seated, I located a loaded Smith & Wesson M&P Shield .40 caliber pistol (S/N: HUN830). I made the pistol safe and handed it to Dep. Hooper to check and see if it was stolen. Dep. Hooper then checked the pistol through Carroll County Dispatch and was advised that the pistol was indeed stolen. It was confirmed to be stolen by Douglasville Police Department and a conformation was sent.
I then placed Boyd in handcuffs and advised her she was being detained. She then began to cry and yelled at Spinks that he knew it was his and he needed to admit it. I asked Spinks if it was his and he stated it was. I then placed Spinks in handcuffs. I continued my search of the vehicle and discovered a blue in color canvas book bag in the rear seat of the vehicle where I had observed Spinks reaching as the vehicle was stopping. Inside the bag were 4 silver packs labeled “TOP SHELF BC BUD” inside all four packs was suspected marijuana. There was also a Mason Jar containing suspected marijuana and a small plastic bag inside the jar as well.
Also located inside the book bag were a set of digital scales used for weighing narcotics, multiple empty silver packs labeled “TOP SHELF BC BUD” and a box containing numerous plastic baggies used for packaging and selling narcotics. I then placed Spinks in the back of my patrol car. I then explained the traffic citation to Boyd and released her from the scene. I transported Spinks to the Carroll County Jail without incident and he was turned over to the jail staff. Evidence was placed into evidence locker #23.
