During the stop, deputies reported the suspects were very nervous and gave conflicting statements to deputies. Deputies got consent to search bother vehicles and found 23 pounds of marijuana in the trunk of one of the vehicles and evidence linking the driver of the first vehicle to the marijuana.

The deputies arrested Coronado Hinds, 42, Elva Mayweather, 34, and Chinika Pittman, 27, all of Lawrenceville, Ga., on charges of third-degree possession of marijuana and state-jail felony criminal conspiracy.
