After the vehicle turned south on Hillman, the trooper made contact with Barber.
The court document stated the odor of marijuana was detected by the trooper, and combined with the actions of the driver, Barber was placed in his vehicle.
A search of the vehicle revealed numerous pills with a ‘M-30’ marking, along with a large baggie containing a crystal-like substance. A loaded handgun was also recovered.
