Driver cited for pot possession

After her vehicle was observed weaving in its lane, a Forsyth County woman has been arrested and cited for the possession of marijuana.

According to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office incident report filed June 17, at about 2 a.m. a Toyota 4-Runner SUV was observed crossing the center line and was subsequently pulled over.

The report states that upon contact with the deputy, the driver allegedly admitted to drinking for several hours through the day and claimed that mechanical issues with her vehicle were the reason for the way she was driving.

“While speaking with [the driver], I did not observe any signs that she was impaired. I did, however, smell the odor of marijuana,” the deputy states in the report.

After she was asked to step out of the vehicle, the driver admitted that she had a small amount of marijuana in the center console and in her purse. Upon a search of her vehicle, the deputy stated that he found three baggies, a plastic container and a metal pipe in the vehicle.

The driver was then arrested, placed in handcuffs and put into a patrol car.

“Due to [the driver’s] honesty, the small amount of marijuana and her positive employment, she was released from custody on citations,” the report states.
