Two ar­rested for mar­i­juana

The Covington News - - Sports - AM­BER PITTMAN Staff Re­porter

A call to a Bent Pine Court home early Sun­day morn­ing for stalk­ing led to sev­eral ar­rests, in­clud­ing two for mar­i­juana.

As the of­fi­cers ap­proached the front door of the res­i­dence they could im­me­di­ately smell mar­i­juana, and although they could see two males asleep on the couch through the blinds, of­fi­cers knocked for about five min­utes be­fore any­one came to the front door.

Even­tu­ally a woman came to the door. She said it was prob­a­bly her sis­ter who had called 911 and that she had left sev­eral min­utes be­fore of­fi­cers ar­rived.

When asked about the strong smell of mar­i­juana, the woman re­port­edly told of­fi­cers that she didn’t know where it came from and gave them per­mis­sion to search the home.

The three men in the liv­ing room and two found sleep­ing in the be­d­room were pat­ted down be­fore of­fi­cers started search­ing the home. In a trash bag be­side one of the couches of­fi­cers lo­cated a brown bag that smelled strongly of mar­i­juana and con­tained a plas­tic bag and a small black bag, both with sus­pected mar­i­juana in­side.

When asked who the mar­i­juana be­longed to, two of the men, 20-year-old Qua­vi­ous Da­mon Huff and 23-year-old Dustin De­mario El­liott ad­mit­ted it was theirs, ac­cord­ing to re­ports. They were both ar­rested for pos­ses­sion less than one ounce of mar­i­juana. A third man, 18-year-old Travis English, was ar­rested on a war­rant out of Car­roll County. The two other males were is­sued warn­ings and told to leave the home.
