Talladega County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force Commander Jason Murray said the vehicle was initially pulled over Tuesday for a traffic violation. A search of the vehicle turned up 46.5 grams, or about an ounce and a half, of marijuana, an amount inconsistent with personal use.
Murray said none of the five people in the car would claim the marijuana individually, so all five were charged with possession of marijuana in the first degree.
Arrested were Jessica Stokes Lee Pharr, 33; Paula Renea Murray, 53; Benjamin Lee Burnett, 21; Casey Hugh Barnett, 27; and Terry Madison Baker, 18.
Murray said Wednesday he did not think any of them had had their initial court appearances yet.
Unlawful possession of marijuana in the first degree is a Class C felony in Alabama, punishable upon conviction by one year and one day to 10 years in prison.
