Laterris Drake caught with over 3 ounces of marijuana in his vehicle

21-year-old Laterris Drake was jailed on December 17th after police observed a vehicle speeding down I-24. The speed was locked at 81 mph in a 70 mph zone. The officer initiated a traffic stop, but the car didn’t stop and drove off at exit 8, throwing a large bag of marijuana and a Glock handgun out the window. The vehicle finally stopped at the QT gas station on Rossview Road, where he was identified by his state ID. During the search of his vehicle, small “nuggets” of marijuana were found throughout the car, and a small baggy of marijuana was found on the ground underneath, where Drake was handcuffed after he exited the vehicle. All the marijuana found, including the bag that was thrown, weighed in at 93 grams/3.30 oz. It was later discovered that Drake was charged with felony drug possession in May 2023.
