MAGNOLIA, Ark. (AP) -- Magnolia police say it wasn't the fried chicken in Savalas Vantoli Stewart's car that gave off a funky smell. Instead, officers say they found a side dish of marijuana that Stewart hid inside of a recently purchased box of chicken during a traffic stop Friday night.
Police say officers smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the car and found it after Stewart consented to a search.
Officers said they also found several Ecstasy pills in Stewart's pockets.
Stewart, 33, of Waldo, faces a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge and felony drug possession charge for having the Ecstasy.
A deputy at the Columbia County jail said officers let Stewart out Monday to await a court appearance. A telephone number for Stewart in Waldo could not be found.
