BROOKS COUNTY, GA (WALB) - A traffic stop led to the discovery of twenty-five pounds of marijuana in Brooks County Tuesday.

19-year-old Alvarado Godinez-Torres of Lawrenceville and 40-year-old Fernando Ruiz-Torres of Pearson were arrested after a deputy found a large block of compressed marijuana in their truck.

Deputies say the two were headed to Tallahassee, and were driving through Brooks County to avoid being stopped on I-75.

The confiscated pot had a street value of 36-thousand dollars.
