ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

A Holly Hill man is in jail after a traffic stop resulted in nearly two pounds of marijuana being seized, deputies say.

Daniel Devine, 37, was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana after a traffic stop lead to the discovery of drugs late Thursday, according to an incident report.

“Our investigators stopped a vehicle for a simple traffic violation that turned into a sizable narcotics seizure,” Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said. “This traffic stop removed a considerable amount of marijuana from our streets.”

Bond was set for Devine at $5,000 cash or surety during a hearing on Friday.

According to deputies, just after 9 p.m. investigators patrolling near Santee noticed a Chevrolet Tahoe make a turn into an Old Number Six Highway car wash without using a turn signal.

As investigators approached the vehicle, the smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle was obvious, Ravenell said.

Police say they requested additional units to the scene. Santee police as well as more Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office investigators arrived to find a discount store bag containing two plastic bags of marijuana when they searched the vehicle. A third and smaller bag was also found to contain marijuana, incident reports say.

Over $1600 was also seized from Devine, according to the report.

A passenger in the vehicle was released after being questioned during the initial investigation.

Inv. Johnny Thrower is leading the ongoing investigation.
