PRINCE GEORGE, Va. (WTVR) — A traffic stop in front of Prince George County High School led police to a cache of marijuana, thousands in cash and guns.

Prince George County Police said 35-year-old Ronte J. Spratley of Petersburg was arrested Tuesday  after he was stopped for a traffic violation by an officer currently serving as the high school’s resource officer.

During the stop, police said they seized over 1,000 grams of marijuana, $11,000 in cash, three firearms and property worth a few thousand dollars.

Spratley was charged with possession of marijuana, but officials stressed that he may face additional charges since the case is still under investigation.

    It always bothers me how a traffic stop always constitutes as a search of the entire vechicle. And a requirement to ask for everyone id and search them. Not saying what he had was okay but what led the officer to search the vehicle for a traffic stop?

    When a person is pulled over for a traffic violation and the cops smells weed he has probable cause to check…Also, with that much weed and loot I seriously doubt that shit was hiding under the seat…who the heck speeds Ina school zone knowing they have that much illegal stuff on him…the news report is not a complete run of the official traffic violation…I am sure something tipped the cop off…could have been an outstanding warrant or something simple…
