Seymour man faces possession of marijuana charge after stop

A traffic stop Thursday evening in the Seymour area led to the discovery of more than a quarter of a pound of marijuana and the arrest of a man.

Derrick T. O’Sullivan, 33, of Seymour, faces a charge of possession of marijuana after the incident that began when Jackson County Officer Mark Holt reported seeing a car being driven 71 mph in a 55 mph zone. That occurred in the 9100 block of U.S. 31 North.

Holt said during the stop he smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle. A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of 130 grams of marijuana, or about a 0.28 pounds, he said.

Sullivan was booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown at 8:49 p.m. Thursday and was being held without bond until his initial hearing.
