A man who crashed his car was busted for trafficking weed early Friday morning in Marlboro County.

Deputies with the Marlboro County Sheriff's Office responded to the Brickyard Road area of Wallace after receiving calls reporting a vehicle in the ditch. Responding deputies found Alonzo Jason Lewis with the vehicle and say approximately two pounds of weed was seen in the vehicle.

Lewis told deputies he wrecked his car and admitted the marijuana was his, the Sheriff's Office says.

Lewis was arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
