MIDLAND - Two people remain behind bars after they were caught in Midland with more than two pounds of marijuana in their car.

48-year-old John Kingston of Paint Rock and 23-year-old Maureen Patterson are facing felony charges of weed possession in a drug free zone.

They were pulled over in the 4300 block of Illinois around 10:30 p.m. on Friday night.

The officer could smell marijuana coming from the vehicle while he was talking to them.

A police service dog sniffed out the drugs which were hidden in a T.J. Maxx bag.

Patterson also handed over more weed that she had hidden in her bra.

The charges were enhanced because the car was within 1,000 feet of Kaplan College.
