Brenham police officer Hunter Andreas stopped a car because of a defective break light at 8:23pm. The driver turned into the Wal-Mart parking lot on Highway 36 South.
The officer could smell burning marijuana and asked to search the car. The search found a small plastic bag containing the weed. There were four people in the car, but a 23-year old passenger from Austin claimed possession. Vernon Eugene Wynn was arrested for the misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
