COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Nearly 40 pounds of marijuana was found in a car following a traffic stop in Colleton County. 

The Colleton County Sheriff's Office arrested Varun Sharma and Steven R Jairan on drug violations and were transported to the Colleton County Detention Center. 

Their arrest stems from an incident on Thursday when a deputy conducted a traffic stop on I-95 near mile marker 51 after observing a car following too close to the vehicle in front of him. 

"A consent to search of the vehicle was granted by the driver, which yielded a total of 30 heat sealed bags of marijuana found to weigh 37 pounds which was located in the trunk of the vehicle," CCSO officials said.
