It only took police a few seconds to spot probable cause while they were investigating a tip about marijuana trafficking in the Kayson Court area on Thursday.
A handgun was reported to be in plain view from the doorway of a Mobile house, but it was ultimately the wafting smell of marijuana that really caught the Mobile County Street Enforcement Narcotics Team’s attention.
After getting a search warrant, police found 10 pounds of marijuana, THC resin or “dabs,” marijuana-laced baked goods, assorted narcotic prescriptions and drug paraphernalia in the home.
Gaddis, who has prior drug charges, added trafficking marijuana, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia to the list.
Lebouef was only booked for trafficking marijuana during the Feb. 11 incident, but has previous charges for receiving stolen property, carrying a pistol without a permit and simple possession of marijuana.
In a recent press release, the Mobile Police Department pointed out these arrests began with a tip to the MCSENT, which can be reached by phone at 251-342-1912.
