Maricopa Police arrested a woman last week after allegedly discovering nearly two pounds of marijuana in her shopping cart.
Nicole Knight, 37, was allegedly pushing 1.6 pounds of marijuana in a cart near the Honeycutt Road and Maricopa Groves Parkway intersection March 9, according to a Maricopa Police Department report.
The incident began when an MPD officer noticed Knight allegedly jaywalking across Honeycutt Road around 6:30 p.m.
While speaking with Knight, the reporting officer “noticed an odor of marijuana emanating” from the cart, according to the report.
Knight purportedly showed the officer a small of amount of the drug in a sheet of paper she had on her person. The officer then placed Knight in custody and stated her Miranda rights, according to the report.
Afterward, the officer searched the cart and discovered a large, black plastic garbage bag that reportedly contained the additional marijuana.
The police report states Knight claimed the drug was for personal use and denied ever selling marijuana.
Police forwarded a single charge of possession of marijuana against Knight, a class 6 felony.
