possession of narcotics

Police entered the parking lot west of 1505 W. Market St to conduct a foot patrol in the area. As officers exit their vehicle I observed a blue Nissan sedan bearing Pa registration KPZ-4592, occupied by three subjects. The vehicle pulled out of the parking spot and drove by police to exit the parking lot. As the vehicle passed police they could smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. Due to that vehicle being the only vehicle in the parking lot police stopped the vehicle in the first block of S. Adams St. 

As police approached the vehicle they could smell the strong odor of marijuana again. Police made contact with the driver who was identified as Cindy Traversie. Police advised Traversie she was stopped due to the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle and requested she step out of the vehicle. Police then removed the front seat passenger, Kendra Spagnola and the rear passengers side occupant, Corina Whitehead. Police read the three their Miranda warnings and question them about their observations. Traversie admitted to having a small amount of marijuana in a black container next to her drivers seat along with two glass pipes in the vehicle. Police located a small amount of marijuana in a black grinder next to the drivers seat. Police then located the first multi colored glass pipe under the front passengers seat and the second one in the glove box as Traversie advised.

Police questioned them who the marijuana belonged to and they admitted that they all three were going to smoke it. They were advised that all three of them would be receiving a citation in the mail for disorderly conduct.
