A 20-year-old college student is facing multiple drug charges after a Feb. 4 traffic stop on Harbins Road in Dacula.
A Gwinnett County Police officer stopped the vehicle driven by Fashionette Diamonds Lee of Lawrenceville, Ga. after noticing her vehicle had an inoperative headlight and a "tag applied for" sign dispalyed instead of a license plate.
According to the police report, Lee explained that she had purchased the vehicle a few days prior and had yet to obtain a plate. When asked for her license, Lee said she did not have it with her. Her passenger also did not have any identification and informed the officer it was taken for "possession."
"I asked Lee and [the passenger] 'Possession? Is that why I smell weed in the car?' Lee and [the passenger] became very nervous and started trembling considerably," the officer wrote in the report.
The officer noted that both women were drinking heavily from their "Monster" cans.
"At that point, I did not smell any odor consistent with marijuana emitting from the vehicle," the officer wrote.
The officer then asked Lee where the drugs were. Lee denied having any drugs in the vehicle.
"I told Lee that I knew there was weed in the vehicle and that she might as well let me have it," the report stated.
