The suspects failed to stop for the police, leading to a short pursuit. After pulling over, officers located a launcher with canisters, tennis balls that were cut that contained tobacco and green leafy substance, a fruity pebble THC ball and open alcoholic beverage containers.

Terrell Freeman, Terrell Jones and Alexia Stewart were arrested. A total of 96 grams of marijuana and 577 grams of tobacco were seized.
