Aroma of pot leads to man's arrest

A Granite Falls man applying for a gun permit at the Sheriff's Office last week was charged with drug possession after authorities smelled marijuana wafting from his body.



Dennis Lee Vines Jr., 25, was visiting the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office Thursday morning when a administrative assistant smelled marijuana, authorities said.



"The odor was so overpowering that it soon filled hallways," according to a press release from the Sheriff's Office.



The canine team was called, and a German shepherd named Kilo sniffed the outside of Vines' 2001 Dodge Dakota pickup, which was parked in the Sheriff Office parking lot. Kilo found two small bags of marijuana, two marijuana cigarettes and two packs of rolling papers, authorities said.



"We see it all in this business," Sheriff Alan Jones said.



Vines was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors. He was released on a $850 bond and is scheduled to make his first court appearance May 7.

I got another one that kinda relates to this story; i wont mention the departments name;



During a polygraph examination (for a L.E. position) one of the questions asked was when was the last time you used marijuana. The man replied about 20 minutes ago. Then he was asked if he still had some of the marijuana and he replied yes. Then the man was asked where the marijuana was and he taped his upper jacket near the breast and said right here.



The man soon after being arrested was asked why he did this, and he replied i thought the drugs would help calm me down for the test.



Needless to say he didn't get the job

In oregon,, unless it was a felony (which it says it was only misdemeanors)

he could post bail then go upstairs and apply for his CCW and still get it.
