MARIANNA, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A Greenwood man is facing charges after police say they found drugs in his vehicle.

Marianna Police say early Wednesday morning they pulled over Anthony Edwards and Di'quan Long, both of Greenwood.

Police say Edwards' license was suspended and Long was on state probation and was court ordered under a drug offender curfew from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Long was arrested for violating his probation and Edwards was issued a citation for driving with a suspended license.

Police say they towed the vehicle since there was no licensed driver.

Police say they inventoried the vehicle before it was towed and found a back pack with two bags of what they believed was crystal meth. Once tested, police say it came back as methamphetamine. The bag weighed about 136 grams, according to police, which is worth about $20,400.

After determining the backpack belonged to Long, he was charged with trafficking meth.
