An officer noticed a car at the intersection of Whipple Rd. and Long Point Rd. with a burned out tag light.
In addition, the driver did not use her turn signal and was subsequently pulled over.
When the officer approached the car he could smelled the faint odor of marijuana, according to the police report.
He noticed air fresheners all over the car as he waited for her to hand over her license and registration. The officer asked her if she had anything illegal in the car and she said no.
He asked her where she was coming from and she said her job on Houston Northcutt Blvd. However, the officer followed her from a house in the area of Six Mile Rd.
The officer asked her if she had any open containers in the car and she said no because she was only 19.
He asked her if she had any marijuana in the car and she laughed and said no.
He then asked her for permission to search her car and she asked why and then said she has let officer search her car in the past for no reason.
He asked her again in hopes of getting a clear answer and she looked at the car and then looked back at the officer and said no, according to the police report.
At that point the officer went and retrieved his K9 dog from the patrol car and walked it around the car.
The dog gave a noticeable change in behavior, therefore giving the officer probable cause to search the vehicle.
He located a 1.2 gram bag of weed with blunts and rolling papers.
The girl admitted to the officer that she met her boyfriend’s brother at a gas station and drove him to a house where she bought pot from someone she did not know. She said she has only been smoking pot for a couple of months.
