    What began as an investigation into a crash along Interstate 69 in Fishers ended with an arrest when officers found eight pounds of marijuana near the scene.

    Fishers Police were tipped off that one of the drivers involved in a crash Wednesday night hid something in the woods before officers arrived. Officers searched the grassy area near the scene where they found the marijuana.

    During their investigation, officers determined it belonged to one of the drivers in the crash, identified as Phillip L. Suggs of Indianapolis. Officers detained him at the scene.

    Police found $5,387 in cash on Suggs while searching him.

    Suggs was booked into the Hamilton County Jail on initial charges of possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
