GULFPORT -- A motorist stopped for an equipment violation early Wednesday was found with 13 grams of marijuana packaged for distribution, Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson said.

Chandler Dale Pugh, 25, of 8th Avenue in Gulfport, was arrested on a charge of possession with intent to distribute marijuana after a 1 a.m. traffic stop.

A deputy had pulled over a black 2014 Hyundai Sonata on Grady Drive near South Swan Road. The area is just north of where South Swan becomes Three Rivers Road.

The deputy found the marijuana in the vehicle, Peterson said.

Pugh was booked at the Harrison County jail and was held on a $10,000 bond.
