K-9 search results in cannabis find, 2 arrests
Daily News

What started as a routine traffic stop for the Robinson Police Department on Thursday, ended in a tussle and a large amount of cannabis found inside the vehicle.

According to Sgt. Dan Strauch, about 7:41 p.m. a silver Chrysler Pacifica was pulled over for a traffic violation at Lincoln and Highland, but things took a different turn when the K-9 unit arrived.

Strauch said K-9 Officer Dex alerted officers to the possibility of cannabis inside the vehicle, which Bradley Weck, 28, Palestine, and Mary Harrison, 26, Palestine, occupied.

Both were asked to leave the vehicle while the K-9 searched it. They refused to get out and the investigation turned physical, as they fought the officers at the scene.

However, they were eventually placed into custody on charges of resisting arrest and obstructing a peace officer.

A search of the vehicle resulted in 98 grams of cannabis being found under the passenger seat. Both were then charged with unlawful delivery of cannabis.

Deputies from the Crawford County Sheriff's Office also arrived at the scene, where two patrol cars and the K-9 vehicle were stationed, after reports of the scuffle. However, Weck and Harrison had been restrained by the time they arrived.

They are being held in the Crawford County Jail awaiting bond to be set by a judge.
