Traffic stop for high beams leads to drug bust, police say

Daniel Banks, Justin Hardaway, and Martavius Ward

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Three Memphis men are behind bars after police say they found drugs and a loaded gun in their possession.

According to police, it all started when an officer pulled over a vehicle on Florida Street for driving with its high beams on. That’s when the officers said they smelled marijuana coming from the car.

A search of the vehicle led to the recovery of a backpack inside which was carrying a loaded gun, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

All three men inside the car – Justin Hardaway, Daniel Banks and Martavius Ward – denied ownership of the bag. All three were charged with various drug and firearm-related charges.
