On Saturday, September 8th, at approximately 11:15 pm officers with the Wichita Falls Police Department responded to a report of a large fight outside of the Deep End Bar located in the 5100 block of Jacksboro Hwy.
Upon arrival officers observed a black vehicle leaving the parking lot at a high rate of speed. Believing the occupants of the vehicle may have been a part of the disturbance officers initiated a stop of the vehicle. The vehicle was found to be occupied by five adult males. The males were later identified as 21 year old Jaquaveon Pope (back left passenger), 21 year old Devonte Perez (driver), 20 year old Deonte Greer (front seat passenger), 21 year old Marlon Edwards (back middle passenger) and 20 year old Charleston Denman (back right passenger).
While officers were standing outside of the vehicle they could smell the odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. When they looked inside the car through the open windows they could see very small pieces of a green substance that appeared to be marijuana. The green substance was strewn throughout the car, on the occupants clothing, on bags in the car, on the center console and on the sides of the doors. Several of the subjects were also covered in mud and admitted to being part of the disturbance that had occurred in the parking lot.
During the course of the investigation officers recovered 0.11 ounces of a substance that rendered a positive for marijuana using a field test kit. Officers also located a loaded handgun under the passenger side of the vehicle. When officers reviewed the video from the in-car camera they could see what appeared to be the front seat passenger, Greer, open his car door, stick his foot out the door and then reach his hand under the vehicle.
All subjects were arrested and transported to the Wichita County jail without incident where they were charged with possession of marijuana. Greer was also charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon.
