VANDERBURGH COUNTY, Ind. (WEHT/WFXR) — Two Virginia residents are in the Vanderburgh County Jail in Indiana without bond as of Friday after trying to deliver marijuana-laced foods to St. Louis.
X`Zavier Whitted and Zamounte Whitted of Manassas, Va. were pulled over for speeding around 2 p.m. on Thursday.
Deputies say as they approached the car, they could smell a strong marijuana odor.
Suspected marijuana, cereal bars, a brownie, and hand-rolled marijuana cigarettes were found. The items were made to look like consumable food products and were made from various types of breakfast cereal.
Samples of all the edible items field tested positive as marijuana. More than 50 packages of THC edibles were seized during the stop. The total field weight of the seized items was approximately 8 pounds.

Deputies also spoke with Mr. Whitted and admitted that he had made the THC containing products himself. He claimed that the brownies did not contain THC, but admitted that the cereal bars did.
Both were arrested and charged with dealing marijuana.
