Two men were arrested Monday night after authorities responded to a report of drug activity in North Little Rock and found more than a pound of marijuana in a backpack, according to a North Little Rock police report.
Officers were called about 8:15 p.m. to 1600 Chandler St., where they spotted a car parked illegally in the street in front of the residence.
Police approached the vehicle and smelled a strong odor of marijuana, at which point the driver and passenger were taken into custody and the car was searched, the report said.
A backpack containing more than a pound of marijuana was recovered from the backseat along with digital scales, the report said.
The driver, identified as Demetrius James Mitchell, 26, of North Little Rock, and Eddie Withers, 31, of North Little Rock, were each arrested on charges of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Court dates were set Tuesday for both men.
