15 pounds of marijuana seized by Berlin Police


Berlin Police stop a man with a carload of marijuana.

Johnny Lee Brown III was traveling through Berlin Saturday when he was pulled over.

Police found 15 pounds of marijuana, about $1,500 in cash and several cell phones in the backseat.

Colquitt County investigators say Brown gave police a fake name when he was questioned.

“When he ran and checked him for warrants it provided us with a photo. It was apparent to the officer that the individual was lying about his identity; He was indeed Mr. Brown wanted out of Cook County,” said Lt. Shawn Bostick, Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office.

Brown is charged with trafficking marijuana and providing false information to law enforcement. He's still in the Colquitt County jail.
