Cops smell pot before pulling over car

Published: Thu, August 21, 2014 @ 12:00 a.m.

Staff report


An officer who pulled over a car about 5:35 p.m. Tuesday said he could smell marijuana coming from the vehicle while he was still in his cruiser.

Officer George Anderson wrote in a report he pulled over a car at the Wick Avenue entrance ramp to the Madison Avenue Expressway for an improper turn and he could smell marijuana coming from the car as soon as he got behind it.

The driver, Clarence Williams, 31, of Youngstown, had no driver’s license and gave police a false name and fake Social Security number.

When he gave the police officer the real information, it was revealed he had several open suspensions on his license, reports said.

Williams was cited with driving under suspension and failure to properly use child restraints. A 5-year-old child was in the back seat, reports said.

Williams also had $754 in cash on him, reports said.

A passenger, Destiney Smith, 26, of Youngstown, was cited with possession of marijuana because there was suspected marijuana in the car where she was sitting, reports said, some in a pill bottle and some loose marijuana on the floor.

In another traffic stop about 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, Marcus Whitted, 30, of West Princeton Avenue, was cited with possession of dangerous drugs after police found 21 pills in a bottle in his car. He was pulled over at Gibson and Indianola avenues on the South Side for an improper turn, reports said.

Such a BS story, that cop has a super nose and should replace the dogs. I mean come on. You smelled it coming from a car but didn't find anything burning and only found a small loose amount on the floor? That is either some super super stanky funk or you have a nose better than a canine or you're lying.
I'm just going to call you a liar now.

39-Really? Liar?

Here's a credible suspect profile:

1-no license
2-provides a false name
3-provides false SSN
4-no baby seat
5- suspended license

Anyone who wants social credibility and respect needs to stop toting their kids around in cars with drugs in them, and stop making up false identities, etc.

The cop would never have known those things if they didn't profile the person and make up a story about smelling weed. No problems with them getting scum off the streets but problem with the so called smell story.
