Sheriff's Deputy makes impromptu drug bust

A Smith County Sheriff's Deputy made an impromptu drug bust.

50 pounds of marijuana was found last night during a traffic stop on I-20. Once the deputy discovered the dope, the driver took off, leaving his license in the officer's hands.

An arrest warrant has now been issued for 34-year-old Billy Joe Duckworth of Pensacola, Florida. Deputies tell us the car he was driving, a rented Chevy Malibu, was reported stolen early Thursday morning.
