Seatbelt Mission Leads to Marijuana and Cocaine Arrests

On 13 Mar 11 @ 3:17am, while at 7800 S. Roberts Rd., Justice PD Officers were conducting a seatbelt mission. A traffic stop was conducted for a seat belt violation and the driver was arrested for driving on a suspended drivers license. The interior of the vehicle smelled like burnt cannabis and the passenger admitted to smoking a "blunt." The passenger handed the Officer a "blunt" from the center console ashtray. She was then taken into custody after she briefly resisted the arrest. A search of the vehicle revealed a plastic baggy containing cocaine near the driver's seat. The driver, Kellen Carpenter, 27 years of age, of Bridgeview, IL was charged with Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance and Driving While License Suspended.
