The "Click it or Ticket" patrol held Friday night by the Red Level Police Department, along with numerous agencies, turned up more than drivers without seat belts or proper insurance forms.

Red Level Police Chief David Anderson said Friday's checkpoint also resulted in six people being arrested on drug charges, including one case involving four Tennessee residents.

In this case, Anderson said a car was stopped at the checkpoint, conducted on Alabama Highway 55 and County Road 107, and said during the stop there was a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

Anderson said occupants in the car were acting nervous.

A marijuana cigarette was produced by an occupant in the car, and after consent to search the car was granted Anderson said "a good sized amount" of marijuana was located.

Arrested in connection with the items found in the car were Jennifer Lynn Campbell, Wayne Grubb and James Roe, all of Tennessee, as well as a juvenile female also from Tennessee.

All were charged with possession of marijuana in the second degree and possession of drug paraphernalia.

All have since bonded out of jail.

Also during the roadblock, two other persons were arrested on drug charges, according to Anderson.

A car was pulled over during the patrol after a smell of marijuana was detected. The

odor was detected during the course of the driver of the car being asked to show her drivers license.

After the car was pulled to the side of the road, marijuana and rolling paper were found in plain view.

Arrested in connection with items found were Misty Taylor, 18, of Trussville and Emily Stallings, 18, of Birmingham.

Each were charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
