A 19-year-old Leesburg man was arrested on a drug possession charge when he admitted he had marijuana concealed in his crotch.

A Sumter County deputy sheriff was on patrol Monday in Webster when he saw a black Kia passenger car run a stop sign. The deputy noted the vehicle did not have operating brake lights.

When the deputy made contact with the three occupants in the car, he could smell the odor of fresh marijuana. No one in the car had a medical marijuana card.

Jemari Moton admitted that he had “two zips” within his crotch area. Moton pulled out a large bag which contained 57 grams of marijuana.

Moton was placed under arrest for the possession of the marijuana and was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center where bond was set at $2,000.

The driver of the Kia was issued two warnings tickets.
