A search of his vehicle resulted in the seizure of five pounds of pot and 500 grams of THC wax, along with THC oil and gummies, authorities said. The marijuana was worth $6,000 and the THC products had a street value of approximately $15,000, according to police.

Pickett was booked into the Habersham County Jail on charges of driving under the influence, felony marijuana possession, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, two counts of possessing a Schedule 1 drug and possession of a Schedule 1 drug with the intent to distribute, authorities said.
