The Crisp County Sheriff's deputies pulled a man over for speeding and found some fresh marijuana plants.

Earlier this month deputies pulled over 44-year-old James Craig Culkin, who was going 83 miles per hour along GA 401. Once stopped law enforcers smelled Marijuana and called for a canine.

They found two buckets that had young marijuana plants, plus eight Ziploc bags of marijuana, and a smoking device.       

"He pulled over the car and got a faint whiff of marijuana..he called for the K9 dog and K9 Tessa responded and gave the positive alert," said Lt. Teresa Miller of the Crisp County Sheriff's Dept.  

Culkin was charged with speeding, failure to signal and distribution of marijuana. He has since bonded out of jail.
