NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Following a traffic stop on US Highway 59 North, deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office arrested two men on drug charges and seized a “felony amount” of marijuana early Friday morning.

Trevor Chase Baird, 21, of Richmond, and Kaleb Cole Pierce, 21, of Katy, are both still being held at the Nacogdoches County Jail and each man was charged with state-jail felony possession of marijuana between 4 ounces and 5 pounds and Class A misdemeanor possession of a dangerous drug. No bail amount has been set for either man.

According to the sheriff’s office narrative, NCSO deputies stopped a vehicle in the 7800 block of US 59 at about 12:36 a.m. Friday. When they made contact with Baird and Pierce, the deputies noticed a strong odor of unburnt marijuana coming from the vehicle, the narrative stated.

When the deputies did a probable cause search of the vehicle, they found a “felony amount” of marijuana in it, the narrative stated. Baird and Pierce were arrested at the scene and taken to the county jail.
