A Kentucky woman was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia and carrying a firearm without a license after a traffic stop on Interstate 65.
Jami Travers, 28, Mt. Pleasant, was stopped at 3:05 a.m. Thursday on I-65 at the 76 mile marker by Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Deputy Leah Burton for having broken taillights, deputies said.
Burton noticed a strong odor of raw marijuana coming from the vehicle and asked Travers and a passenger to leave the vehicle, deputies said.
Burton found drug paraphernalia and about 40 grams of marijuana, along with a firearm under the driver’s seat, deputies said. She was taken to Bartholomew County Jail, where she was released on $11,000 bond.
The passenger, who was not identified, was issued a summons ticket.
Indiana State Police Trooper Jacob Tolle assisted at the scene.
