Two Milledgeville, Ga., men were arrested after they were caught transporting marijuana through Harlem early Monday.

At about 9:45 a.m., a Harlem Department of Public Safety officer tried to stop a 2002 Honda Accord on Milledgeville Road (U.S. Highway 78/278). The driver, later identified as Thaddius Hall, 21, fled for more than a mile before stopping near the McDuffie County line, according to Chief Gary Jones.

The car smelled like marijuana, so officers called in a canine unit from the Grovetown Department of Public Safety. Officers found about a pound of marijuana packaged for distribution, according to Jones.

Hall and his passenger, Douglas P. Jones, 23, were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Hall also was charged with violation of a permit, driving too fast for conditions, following too closely, fleeing and attempting to elude and a seat belt violation, according to Jones.

Both are being held in the Columbia County Detention Center.
