Courteney Stuart, WCAV-TV, January 11, 2018


According to Major G.H. Drewery with the Southampton Sheriff’s Office, Deandre Harris was pulled over for speeding at around 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

Drewery said the officer detected the odor of what he believed to be marijuana and subsequently searched the vehicle Harris was driving. In addition to a small quantity of marijuana, the officer found a loaded AR-15 rifle under a coat on the back seat.

Harris is facing a misdemeanor concealed weapon charge and a second misdemeanor charge for transporting a loaded weapon. Drewery said he will not be charged for the marijuana.
