The officer later observed the same vehicle exiting a CVS parking lot.

“I made contact with the driver and immediately I could smell a strong odor of burnt Marijuana,” the officer wrote. “Amber advised that she was just picking up her kids' Health Insurance cards from CVS and heading straight home.”

When asked why she left her vehicle vacant, she explained that she parks there when she visits a friend because she “isn’t supposed to be at her friend’s house.”

When he questioned her about the glass pipe, she explained how “no one has recently smoked Marijuana in her car and has no idea why it smells like Marijuana.” She explained that she hasn’t smoked weed since “last weekend.”

“We only located a black Marijuana smoking pipe under the front passenger seat,” the report read. “The pipe had residue in it that appeared to have just been used.”
