I do not got a Glock in my Pontiac Aztec

Oakland University Police officers patrolling on University Drive spotted a white Pontiac sedan traveling north on Squirrel Road. The vehicle stopped before making it to the Michigan left, then proceeded slowly past the turnaround. After proceeding through the light, the officer noticed the vehicle did not have a license plate or temporary plate. The vehicle continued to slowly drive down the road, swerving occasionally and braking very short of the stop bar at the light. The officer then conducted a traffic stop on the north side of Walton Blvd.

After meeting with the driver, the officer could smell the strong odor of marijuana emanating from the inside of the vehicle. After the driver claimed she had only one blunt, she was asked to perform a field sobriety test. She was able to perform the walk and turn test without much issue, but she had problems completing all of the other tests conducted. She was arrested for driving on a suspended license and for suspicion of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs.

The driver told the officers after she was in the patrol car that there was a pistol magazine in her car and the vehicle was searched. The magazine was found, and the rest of the car was searched along with the driver’s purse to try and find the suspected Glock pistol. The firearm was not found, though less than 2.5 grams of weed were found in the vehicle. The driver was taken to OUPD to be booked and for a legal guardian to be arranged for her pickup.
