California woman arrested for cannabis following traffic stop

Posted by wlpo on April 21, 2011

It’s not unusual for a person traveling halfway across the country to have a couple of suitcases, though you may not expect to find marijuana packed inside.

Police say that’s what they found after pulling over Anneelyse Smith of La Selva Beach, California Tuesday afternoon on Interstate 80 near La Salle.

Police say Smith was stopped for improper lighting and arrested for possession of cannabis.  Her car was searched after police say a dog sniff around the car and smelled drugs.  They say 14 pounds of cannabis was in the suitcases.

Smith was taken to the La Salle County Jail.
