Marijuana 'brick' found during traffic safety checkpoint


One pound marijuana "brick " found in suspect's vehicle

On October 14th at around 1:15pm, Picayune Police were conducting a traffic safety checkpoint on Warren Street near South Blanks Avenue in Picayune, when a black 2008 Toyota Camry pulled up to the checkpoint. The driver of the vehicle, later identified as Bradley Lashun Guillotte, age 32, of 5116 Gates Avenue, Gulfport, MS, failed to provide a driver’s license.

According to Assistant Police Chief Jeremy Magri, officers detected an odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle and asked Guillotte to pull over to the side of the road and to exit the vehicle. At this time, officers conducted a pat-down on Guillotte and felt a large bulge in his right front pocket and observed a portion of a clear plastic bag, which contained a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana, sticking out of the suspect’s pocket. The officer then removed the bag from Guillotte’s pocket.

While searching the vehicle, officers found a large grocery bag under the driver's seat which contained a large “brick” of a leafy green substance that appeared to be marijuana. The brick weighed approximately one pound according to Magri.

Magri stated that Guillotte was taken into custody for Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute within 1500 feet of a Church. He was transported to the Criminal Justice Center, booked, and incarcerated on the charges above.
