Smoking Joint Lands Man In Joint

Gwinnett Co. Sheriff's Dept.

By Veronica Waters

Atlanta, GA None —

Don't smoke pot right before stepping into a room full of deputies.

A 19-year-old man who came to pick up the property of an inmate at the Gwinnett County Jail caught the attention of officers because of how he smelled.  It wasn't body odor--it was the smell of marijuana.

Questioned by deputies, Jordan David Mendez admitted smoking marijuana just before coming to the jail. 

A search of Mendez' vehicle turned up 14 small baggies of marijuana, and he was promptly arrested on charges of possession with intent to distribute marijuana, and crossing the guard line with drugs.

Mendez is being held without bond.
