At that point, Norman Police Det. Darin Morgan arrived at the scene and ran his police dog, Lux, around the car and the dog “alerted to the rear of the car,” the affidavit stated.
Maytubby did not initially consent to the search of his vehicle. After Kimmons told him he would be doing a probable cause search, Maytubby admitted that there was marijuana in the back of the car, according to the affidavit.
Law enforcement found about 18 pounds of marijuana in the rear of the vehicle under the back seats in a black duffle bag. The marijuana was individually wrapped, each in one-pound packages.
In court Wednesday, Maytubby told Judge Lucas “it was a one-time deal” and that he was trying to raise money for his family and resorted back to his old ways because they needed money.
When Lucas asked Maytubby why he needed the money, Maytubby said the family car had caught on fire.
At the time of Maytubby’s arrest in February 2012, he was driving a silver Dodge SUV, according to the affidavit. It was not clear during court proceedings Wednesday whether or not that vehicle was registered to Maytubby.
