A routine traffic stop led to the arrest of three men who were reportedly found with 67 grams of marijuana in Mason jars last month.

Rockdale County Sheriff's Office deputies reportedly found the drugs after stopping a silver Chevy with three men for an inoperable headlight while turning off Sigman Road onto Ga. Highway 20 North near Wendy's at 10:44pm on April 26.

After detecting the smell of raw marijuana in the vehicle, deputies allegedly found three mason jars filled with marijuana and a total of 37 baggies amounting 67 grams in addition to a scale.

All three men in the vehicle were then arrested and transported to the Rockdale County jail.

The driver, Frederick Jones Jr., 21, of Lithonia was charged with Possession of Marijuana with intent to Distribute, Possession of a Schedule III Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug related Objects, Driving while License Suspended and Headlight Violation. His license had been suspended since last December for failing to appear for a court date.

Twin brothers Malik A. Jones and Malcom Jones, both 19-year-old residents of Stone Mountain, were also arrested and each was charged with Possession of Marijuana with intent to Distribute and Possession of Drug-related Objects.
