MARATHON, Fla. -

A routine traffic stop led to a drug bust in the Florida Keys.

Monroe County Sheriff's said they pulled over a car in Marathon on Sunday night because its tag light was out.

When the deputy approached the car, he said he smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the car.

The deputy searched the car and said they found hundreds of small purple colored ziplock bags under the driver's seat.

He said he also found a large amount of marijuana in 95 separate plastic bags, packaged as if for sale, hidden behind a side panel on the front passenger side door.

The marijuana weighed a total of 142 grams.

Deputies arrested Brandi Harley, 26, of Key West.

She is charged with possessing a felony amount of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Deputies also arrested Sierra Williams, 26 of Miami.

She is charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Both women were booked into jail.
