ROSELAND, LA (WAFB) - Tangipahoa Sheriff's office arrests a man for possession with intent to distribute marijuana and an outstanding traffic warrant.

Deputies arrested Marcus Seals of Roseland, 28 on Friday. Authorities say they drove up as a car was pulling away from Seals in what deputies suspected was a drug deal. A few minutes earlier they saw Seals get up from the side of a grocery store as deputies passed by.

When they started talking to Seals, they noticed he was very nervous and speaking with his right side turned away from the deputies.  He was searched and deputies found about 20 grams of marijuana packed in individual plastic bags.

He was arrested and put in jail.
