Possession with intent to sell

Police attempted to stop the vehicle at Catalpa Road, but the driver continued at a slow rate of speed until about Cannon Road. Once stopped, police discovered the driver did not have valid identification and that the passenger, Moody, had a small plastic bag of marijuana.
