JUPITER, Fla. - A routine traffic stop in Palm Beach County led to a bizarre drug bust.

Palm Beach Sheriff's deputies said they pulled over a 2008 Chevrolet truck on A1A in Jupiter on Friday night.

When deputies approached the truck, they said they smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside. They then searched and said they found 107 grams of marijuana in a sandwich bag, hidden in a box of Cocoa Puffs.
 
Deputies said they also found a Ruger .44 caliber revolver in the truck's center console.

They then arrested the driver, Sean Grady Darling, 21.

Darling was charged with marijuana possession of more than 20 grams, possession of a firearm during commission of felony and possession of paraphernalia.

Darling bonded out of the Palm Beach County Jail on Sunday
