vehicle at the 76 mile marker on I-65 for broken taillights. Deputy Burton reported a strong odor of raw marijuana coming from inside the vehicle, so she asked the driver, Jami Travers, of Mt. Pleasant, KY, and her passenger, to exit the vehicle.

Jackson says that a search of the vehicle uncovered drug paraphernalia and approximately 40 grams of marijuana. Deputies, along with Indiana State Police Trooper Jacob Tolle, also allegedly found a gun under the driver’s seat.

Jackson says that Travers was arrested for Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Paraphernalia and Carrying a Firearm without a License. She was booked in the Bartholomew County Jail and later released on $11,000 bond. Jackson adds that the unidentified passenger was issued a summons for an undisclosed infraction.
