The smell of reefer will cost a man three years in jail after lawmen got a whiff of marijuana when they pulled him over.The defendant, Zachary Chase Bryant, was given three years in prison and must pay $2,000 plus costs for promoting the manufacture of meth, simple possession of marijuana and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.He was arrested when his Volvo was sighted by McMinnville Police Sgt. Kenneth Seagraves while the officer was answering the call of a suspicious vehicle. A computer check revealed an outstanding meth warrant, prompting the officer to approach the car.“I could smell marijuana coming from inside the vehicle,” Seagraves said in his warrant, noting the suspect ran away on foot as the officer approached. “After a short chase, I had to wrestle him to the ground in order to subdue him and place him under arrest.”A subsequent search of the suspect’s car netted a metal container with marijuana inside.
