The Jennings County Sheriff's Office wins the award for starting their New Year's resolutions strong with several major crime busts in the past few weeks, the biggest of which happened within four days of each other.
The first occurred not long after midnight on Monday, Jan. 11. A Jennings deputy conducted a traffic stop on a 2014 Mazda SUV on U.S. Hwy 50 near 4th Street.

During the traffic stop, the deputy detected the odor of raw marijuana coming from the vehicle. While speaking with the occupants, the deputy suspected they were trafficking marijuana and/or other illegal drugs. A search of the vehicle uncovered marijuana, evidence of large-scale drug trafficking and over $30,000 in cash. The currency was packaged in a way that would indicate a large scale drug trafficking operation.
