CRESTVIEW – A 22-year-old smoking marijuana with his friends in his car on McCaskill Street told the approaching officer that there “was no pot in the car because it had all been smoked.”

The Crestview Police Department officer who approached the vehicle noted that a “large amount of smoke began to exit the vehicle” when the driver rolled down the window.

The driver said they’d all been smoking marijuana.

A search of the vehicle revealed a small amount of marijuana under the driver’s seat and an open, cold container of Busch Lite. The driver said he had just rolled a joint and the weed on the floor was probably from that effort.

The other occupants of the vehicle denied that they were smoking marijuana and had no idea who’d been drinking the beer that was in the back seat.
