Two people have been arrested after police say they found marijuana, cash, packaging materials and another controlled substance in their car at a James City County gas station.

Sarah Anne King and Michael Brent Newman, both of Richmond, were sitting in a parked car at the Shell gas station on Barhamsville Road around 1 a.m. Sunday when an officer approached the car, said Stephanie Williams, a spokeswoman with the James City County Police.

The officer smelled marijuana and searched the car, where he found about 1 pound of marijuana in various containers, an unknown substance the officer thought was a Schedule I or II drug, about $3,000 in cash and packaging materials, according to a police report.

All of the evidence, along with the 2005 Toyota Corolla in which the suspects were sitting, was seized.

King, 20 and Newman, 36, were arrested and charged with felony possession with intent to distribute and felony possession of a Schedule I or II drug.
