“On September 27, 2013 at approximately 21:37 hours, Officer Ainsworth was on routine patrol on East County Line Road.  At this time he noticed a vehicle that did not maintain its designated lane of travel while turning onto South Wheatley Street from East County Line Road.  Officer Ainsworth also noticed that the vehicle’s taillights were not functioning.  Officer Ainsworth subsequently initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle for these violations.

Upon stopping the vehicle, Officer Ainsworth detected suspicious behavior being exhibited by the driver while he was speaking with him.  Ainsworth also observed the driver reaching in the back seat for something as he was approaching the vehicle.  Ainsworth also recognized the passenger in the vehicle from past dealings with her and knew that she had a history of illegal drug use.  Officer Ainsworth continued his investigation and conducted a field interview with the occupants of the vehicle.  From this field interview, Officer Ainsworth developed probable cause and was given consent to search the vehicle.  Upon searching the vehicle, Ainsworth discovered cocaine, methamphetamine, Xanax, a large amount of drug paraphernalia, and over 200 dosage units of steroids.  Officer Ainsworth also discovered numerous checks that did not belong to the driver or passenger that were possibly stolen checks. Officer Ainsworth subsequently arrested the driver of the vehicle for several felony and misdemeanor charges.  Do to the felony drug charges, Officer Ainsworth seized the vehicle, a 2002 Toyota 4-Runner, for forfeiture.”
