HUNTINGBURG — Two women face marijuana-related accusations after a Sunday night traffic stop north of Huntingburg.
An Indiana State Police trooper stopped a 1999 Ford Crown Victoria on U.S. 231 north of Huntingburg at 8:35 p.m. because of an inoperable headlight. The trooper was preparing a warning regarding the inoperable headlight, along with seat-belt citations, when he discovered the driver, Jami A. Alcocer, 39, 1900 Medical Arts Drive, Huntingburg, had a suspended license and the car’s plate was expired, according to authorities.
While inventorying the vehicle, the trooper noted the strong odor of marijuana. Police allege marijuana and a marijuana grinder were located. The marijuana find included 25.6 grams in a plastic bag that Alcocer is alleged to have given to a juvenile in the vehicle to conceal, police reported.
Authorities arrested Alcocer and an adult passenger, Marisela J. Guerrero, 20, Louisville, Kentucky, on preliminary misdemeanor counts of possession of marijuana. Alcocer was also preliminarily charged with a Level 6 felony count of neglect of a dependent. Guerrero was also preliminarily charged with a misdemeanor county of possession of paraphernalia.
The Dubois County Department of Family & Children also assisted.
