Severe weather caused the tree to fall across Gene Nix Road. A White County Sheriff’s Office Deputy was there to prevent an accident. According to the deputy, Jakab was speeding and had to abruptly stop to avoid hitting the deputy’s car. As the deputy approached Jakab’s car, he smelled marijuana.
White County authorities searched Jakab’s car and found three ounces of marijuana individually packaged to sell along with a plastic container of “DAB” or hash oil which is THC extracted from the marijuana buds along with a handgun. The street value of the illegal narcotics is $ 3,330.
