 REPORTING OFFICER'S NARRATIVE (Brief narrative of the facts surrounding the offense and the arrest.)

At 2:10 PM, Reporting Officers (R/Os) were conducting routine foot patrol when they observed arrestee loitering in front of the Cinema 4 in the Oxford Mall. Upon approaching arrestee, R/Os detected a strong odor of marihuana. Arrestee consented to a search of his person. During said search, Officer Albrecht recovered a baggie containing approximately 1 ounce of a dried green vegetable substance. R/Os then took arrestee into custody and escorted arrestee to their vehicle. Arrestee was handcuffed, informed of his rights, and transported to YCSD.

Transportation to the Sheriff's Department proceeded without incident. At 2:31 PM, R/Os turned the arrestee over to Sheriff's Department personnel for processing.

At all times while in custody, arrestee appeared coherent but unconcerned. Although uncommunicative, arrestee was cooperative.
