ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – Three teens from South Florida were arrested with more than 4 pounds of marijuana after the driver flashed his high-beam headlights at a deputy on State Road 16 near the Outlet Mall on Monday night, according to St. Johns County deputies. 

According to the arrest report, the deputy who pulled over the Mazda 3 smelled burning marijuana and searched the car, finding the marijuana in a duffel bag.

The deputy noted the three 17-year-olds from South Florida were laughing about the arrest, saying they knew how the juvenile system works, that one of them was already on probation for marijuana possession, and they were not concerned about the consequences.

The report noted that one of the teens was overhead telling another, "You should probably make a rap song about this arrest." That teen asked a deputy for the name of the Sheriff Department's Facebook website because he wanted to show their mugshots to friends.

Cody Johns-Grose, of Fort Pierce, was charged with possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana and possession with intent to sell and charged with a felony.

The driver of the car, Hunter Williams, of Fort Pierce, who listed his occupation as "drug dealer," was charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, failure to dim high beams. Nathaniel Lynch, of Royal Palm Beach, was also charged with possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana.
