At 1:29 A.M. this morning, Trooper Ross Johnson conducted a traffic stop on a white 2001 Toyota Prius on Newton Street near 12th Street in Jasper for a traffic violation.
While speaking with the driver, 18 year old Macy Anna Kerstiens, and the passenger, 18 year old Cassidy E. Engleman, both of Jasper, Trooper Johnson could smell the odor of burnt marijuana in the vehicle.
Trooper Johnson, with the assistance of Trooper Kurtis Blunk and Probationary Trooper Noah Ewing, conducted a vehicle search of the Toyota, finding marijuana, a smoking pipe with marijuana in it, and scales.
Through the course of the traffic stop, Trooper Johnson learned that the drugs and paraphernalia belonged to Kerstiens.
Kerstiens was charged with possessing marijuana and paraphernalia, and maintain a common nuisance, and was lodged without incident in the Dubois County Security Center.
Engleman was cited into court on a charge of visiting a common nuisance and was released pending her court date.
