t started as a report of a stop sign being knocked down in Snellville on Tuesday.

By the time it was over, police said Wednesday, officers had seized marijuana worth $1.1 million, $70,726 in cash, an assault rifle, a Chevrolet Avalanche and a Chevrolet Tahoe.

They also had jailed two people on drug trafficking charges.

Officer Tim Pierson of the Snellville Police Department was on his way to investigate a report of a stop sign being knocked down Tuesday when he stopped a motorist for speeding, Chief Roy Whitehead of the Snellville police said Wednesday.

The officer found marijuana in the car and arrested the driver, 38-year-old Courtney Keise of Snellville, police said. His colleagues, meanwhile, went to the driver's house, found marijuana worth $1.1 million and arrested 33-year-old Ann Marie Parker. Investigators charged Keise and Parker with trafficking marijuana.

Whitehead said the case demonstrates the value of an officer looking beyond a traffic offense to investigate other offenses.
