A man wanted on felony marijuana charges by authorities in Georgia was nabbed during a traffic stop by a Franklin Police Officer, yesterday.
Shortly after midnight, Wednesday morning, an officer clocked an I-65N driver traveling 70MPH in the 60MPH zone, near Peytonsville Road. During the stop, a passenger in that car was found to have felony warrants out of Dalton, Georgia for Sale of Marijuana, Possession of Marijuana, and Possession with the Intent to Distribute. Franklin Police arrested 38-year-old Boyce Aker.
