Three Indianapolis women are behind bars this morning after being pulled over for a headlight violation. During the stop troopers located more than $1500 in stolen merchandise from several area stores as well as marijuana. 

Just after 10:00 last night Senior Trooper Joel Flores pulled over a vehicle for only having one working headlight near 34th and Emerson. While speaking with the three occupants of the vehicle, Trooper Flores could smell marijuana coming from inside the car. Further investigation led Flores to find more than $1500 in what is believed to be stolen merchandise. Most of the clothing, purses and accessories still had security tags attached to them and had no bags or receipts. All three occupants were arrested for theft.
