Melissa Simo was in a rush to visit her friend that was in jail for unjust marijuana laws, and she must’ve forgotten about it – that or she feels that possessing medical marijuana is legal. The police dog sniffed out the pungent indica strain in her automobile from the county jail parking lot.
The police dog named “Shadow,” was doing a routine check and she smelled a pungent odor coming from her car. Melissa Simo had dro pot placed in the center console, with 2 different marijuana strains. Sheriff’s Officer Chris Ford searched the car after implications from “Shadow” that the automobile had contraband. Upon inspection, police arrested Simo for marijuana possession and was later released.
It’s not known if “Shadow” thought the marijuana discovered was of hydroponic grade quality.
