Deputies in Franklin County said a cell phone left on top of an officer's car led them to a very large drug bust on Friday.

They said a note was attached to it, which read: "I found this and had nothing to do with it."

According to deputies, the phone contained photos of 21 pounds of marijuana.

An investigation led officers to Mt. Zion Road, where they said they found 23-year-old Tyler Sanderson and 18 pounds of pot.

He was charged with trafficking marijuana greater than five pounds.
