Police did not have to smell or look hard for a Bushnell man's alleged trove of marijuana that landed him in jail Monday afternoon.

According to Cody Leonard Dillon’s arrest report, the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office deputy who pulled Dillon over near Inverness for unlawfully tinted windows smelled the marijuana coming from Dillon’s vehicle when he exited his cruiser.

When Dillon, 22, rolled down his window, the deputy saw two large plastic baggies sitting on the backseat, Dillon’s arrest report states.

A K-9 deputy also alerted to more narcotics in the vehicle.

Deputies, during their search, found 16 baggies of various marijuana edibles, two boxes of cannabis jellies, three jars of concentrated cannabis, packages of cannabis wax, more bags of marijuana flower and $4,600 in cash, according to Dillon’s arrest report.

Deputies seized a total of 3 pounds of marijuana flower.

Dillon was charged with possessing marijuana with intent to sell and two counts of possessing a controlled substance. 

He was jailed under a $6,000 bond, posted bail Wednesday and will be arraigned Dec. 3, court records show. Deputies also ticketed Dillon for having too dark of vehicle window tint.
