STOCKTON — A Georgia man is facing drug trafficking charges after Baldwin County Sheriff’s Deputies seized 75 pounds of marijuana and THC-laced products, along with more than eight pounds of Fentanyl during a routine traffic stop Wednesday, March 30 on Interstate 65 near the Bay Minette/Stockton exit northbound.

Howard Grant, 52, of Snellville, Georgia, was booked into the Baldwin County Corrections Facility on two counts of drug trafficking and is being held without bond, according to a release issued Friday, April 1 by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the release, on Wednesday, a deputy assigned to the special operations unit of the Sheriff’s Office stopped a Georgia-plated pick-up truck pulling an enclosed trailer.

During the stop, the deputy became suspicious, and a search of the trailer revealed approximately 50 pounds of high-grade marijuana, 25 pounds of various THC candies, cereals, edibles and over eight pounds of Fentanyl.
