Police allege that they observed G.C. loading marijuana into the trunk of her vehicle. She was followed and eventually pulled over by police and arrested. A search of the vehicle revealed approximately a pound of marijuana, approximately $1500 cash. Ms. Fagan was successful in securing a stay of proceedings without having to schedule a trial date.
