Traffic stop uncovers hefty haul of suspected marijuana


Officers made a traffic stop on Monday of a female driver who was suspected of driving under the influence, and during the stop they uncovered what police believed was “marijuana for sale.” 

Tiffany M. Reed, 40, was charged with possession of marijuana for sale and driving under the influence, police said.

At 2:30 a.m., police stopped a vehicle on North John Wayne Parkway for suspected impairment based on driving behavior observed by an officer driving behind the vehicle, police said. 

Officers questioned Reed, who allegedly admitted to drinking alcohol, police said, adding she was subsequently charged with DUI and arrested. 

According to a probable cause statement, an inventory search of the vehicle before it was towed discovered a little over four and a half pounds of suspected marijuana in the trunk, split between four separate containers and multiple small plastic baggies, plus $1,197 in cash. 

Reed was booked into Pinal County Jail on the charges, police said.
