    MACON, Ga. -- Two people were arrested on I-16 in Macon on Monday in a drug bust, deputies say.

    Bibb County Sheriff's Office says 24-year-old Jazmen Kay Gatewood, of Marietta, and a 17-year-old from Smyrna are charged with Trafficking of Methamphetamine and Possession with intent to Distribute Marijuana. They're being held in the Bibb County Jail without bond.

    According to deputies, the arrests came around 11 p.m. Monday near Exit 6 (Ocmulgee East Blvd) on I-16.

    "While monitoring traffic on the interstate, deputies noticed a black GMC Envoy with a headlight out," deputies say. "The vehicle then began changing lanes quickly. The deputies stopped the vehicle for traffic violations. When the deputies made contact with the driver there was an odor of Marijuana coming from inside the car."

    Deputies say Gatewood told deputies that she was going to Glenville to see relatives and was not sure how to get there. They continued to smell Marijuana coming from inside of the car. When they asked Gatewood about it, she denied having any drugs in the car.

    BSO says their K-9 then alerted to drugs in the rear hatch of the vehicle.

    A search of the vehicle found a duffle bag in the rear area that contained a remote control drone, as well as several aluminum cans that the tops had been cut off and then reattached.

    Deputies say the cans contained bags of what appeared to be Methamphetamines, Marijuana and clear bags of tobacco. There were 200 grams of Methamphetamine, 50 grams of Marijuana and 100 grams of tobacco, according to BSO.
