The Montgomery County Police Reporter is a just-the-facts publication; here's one of their latest stories:
Sunday evening approximately 7:00P.M. Deputy Juan Chapa and his partner Porter [a dog, by the way] were on routine patrol along US 59 near Creekwood when he spotted a black Ford 500 traveling northbound with Michigan tags.
Stopping the vehicle he talked with the driver who is identified as Stevie Victoria Brown-Crever of Sparta, Michigan. Noticing the numerous air fresheners hanging throughout the car he requested permission to search the vehicle. She denied the consent to search.
What?!? A truck going northbound with Michigan plates? Air fresheners? PROBABLE CAUSE, BAYBEE!!!
Eventually Porter the dog found nine pounds of pot.

(Porter's been finding a lot of stuff lately: Since getting on the job in mid-September, the MCPR says, he's found "Almost 1,600 pounds of marijuana, 797 grams of cocaine, over 3,000 pills, 2 bottles of codiene and a pound of ICE.")
We didn't know that driving with Michigan plates was enough to get you pulled over, but 59 has always been a tough road.
Another county media outlet reports that Brown-Crever was stopped for "a traffic violation."
We've tried to get information from the Montgomery County DA's office, and will update if we do.
