CALHOUN, Ga. – The lawyer for a man accused of having 10 pounds of marijuana said something about the arrest smells. He wants two Georgia State Patrol troopers to prove they can sniff out pot tied up in a trash bag inside a car trunk.
If troopers Jeff Adamson and Kevin Turner are unable to repeat the feat with a random car in the Gordon County courthouse parking lot, attorney David West says the evidence against Jarmane Vernon Knox should be suppressed for lack of probable cause for a search.
West says: "If these officers really think they are human drug dogs, let's put them to the test."
Knox and passenger Derrick Mikes were stopped on Interstate 75, initially because the license plate tag light was out.
