Magnolia police say it wasn't the fried chicken in Savalas Vantoli Stewart's car that gave off a funky smell. Instead, officers say they found a side dish of marijuana that Stewart hid inside of a recently purchased box of chicken during a traffic stop Friday night.

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Police say officers smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the car and found it after Stewart consented to a search.

Officers said they also found several Ecstasy pills in Stewart's pockets.

Stewart, 33, of Waldo, faces a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge and felony drug possession charge for having the Ecstasy.

A deputy at the Columbia County jail said officers let Stewart out Monday to await a court appearance.
