A Grovetown man’s loud stereo recently landed him in hot water and marijuana charges.
Brandon Kesean Rickerson, 21, of Brian Lane, was charged with possession of marijuana and a city noise violation.
A Grovetown Department of Public Safety officer heard Rickerson’s car stereo playing too loudly at about 9:45 p.m. July 22 as he drove on East Robinson Avenue. The officer pulled Rickerson over.
The officer noticed that Rickerson was extremely nervous, was sweating heavily and his hands were shaking badly, according to a department incident report. The officer also noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the car. When asked if he had marijuana, Rickerson said he had “one blunt” and handed the officer a bag of what appeared to be marijuana. He was handcuffed and placed in the officer’s patrol car.
As two officers searched Rickerson’s car, they found four more clear bags of what was later confirmed to be marijuana hidden in the air vent behinds the instrument panel cover, according to the report.
Rickerson was released from the city jail after posting a $665 bond, according to jail records.
