Court records show Davis was staying at a Holiday Inn in Aberdeen when the hotel owner smelled marijuana coming from Davis’ room. After someone in the room reportedly dismissed the owner, local police returned and Davis gave written consent to search the premises.

“They recovered 126 grams of marijuana,” Aberdeen Police Lieutenant William Reiber told ABC. “In addition to that there was a briefcase that contained $92,164 of U.S. currency along with a ledger that contained language which is consistent with someone involved in the sale and distribution of narcotics.”
