The smell of marijuana led law enforcement officers to make several arrests Thursday during highway safety checks conducted by the Statesboro-Bulloch County Crime Suppression Team, Bulloch County Sheriff's Office, Statesboro Police Department and Georgia State Patrol. Officers conducting a safety check in the Hopeulikit area at the intersection of U.S. Highway 25 and U.S. Highway 80 West stopped a car driven by Andre Raymond Ware, 39, of Burkhalter Road, "because of a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside of the vehicle," Sheriff Lynn Anderson said in a news release issued Friday. Master Deputy Kirk McGlamery and his K-9 partner Max responded.
