The officer stopped 32-year-old Jeffery Sebree’s vehicle because he was speeding.

Sebree stated,  “I know, I was speeding”. 

The officer wrote Sebree a warning for the traffic violation. But when he returned to Sebree’s vehicle he detected the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. 

Sebree admitted there was some marijuana in his vehicle. Sebree then handed the officer a black plastic container that contained a partially burned marijuana cigarette.

Sebree was asked to exit the vehicle. As he was exiting the vehicle he told the officer there were more drugs in the vehicle. He went on to repeatedly tell the officer the meth in the vehicle was not his. 

During a search of the vehicle, the officer found a baggie that contained crystal meth that was located in the center console underneath Sebree’s wallet. They also found a torn plastic bag in the driver’s door that contained crystal meth residue. Underneath the car stereo, the officer located crystal meth inside a small metal container. In the passenger side glove box, the officer found a small metal tube with meth residue.

Sebree was arrested on charges of possession of meth, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
