Two Atlanta police officers followed their nose to make an arrest earlier this week.

The officers were patrolling through Sidney Marcus Boulevard on Oct. 19 when they “smelled a strong odor of raw marijuana coming from a vehicle traveling next to them,” according to a City of Atlanta Police Department Facebook post.

Authorities tried to make a traffic stop, but the driver took off. The driver, later identified as 38-year-old Thomas Edwin Deaton, eventually pulled over.

Inside the vehicle, officers found three marijuana plants. The plants weight about 3 pounds and one of them was 6 feet tall, My Fox 8 reported.
