While searching the subject prior to placing him in custody, Trooper Stewart found three baggies of marijuana in a pocket. Another bag of marijuana, three clear empty plastic baggies, a glass pipe and a bag of crystal methamphetamine were located in the passenger compartment of the vehicle where Ussery was sitting.
