Following a traffic stop on U.S. Highway 59 South Monday morning, the Nacogdoches County Constable's office seized a "large amount" of marijuana with a street value of $27,000.

As a result of the marijuana bust, the driver of the vehicle, Hosie Lee Williams, 23, of Pontotoc, Miss., is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a third-degree felony charge of possession of marijuana between five and 50 pounds. No bond has been set at this time.

According to a press release from the Nacogdoches County Constable's office, a deputy stopped a Chevrolet pickup for a traffic violation. When the deputy made contact with the driver, he noticed a strong smell of marijuana emitting from the pickup, the press release stated.

Two deputies from the Nacogdoches County Constable's office then conducted a search of the truck. During the search, they noticed fresh tool marks around the back quarter panels of the pickup.

"After removing the panels, deputies found 12 bundles of marijuana concealed in both the passenger and driver's side quarter panels of the pickup. Williams was arrested at the scene and transported to the Nacogdoches County Jail.
