Hopkinsville police discovered prescription drugs, marijuana, MDMA and vials of a suspected date-rape drug after two people were searched during a traffic stop early Thursday morning on Fort Campbell Boulevard, according to an HPD report.
The report says police stopped a white Mercedes driven by Carrie Pohlman, 29, with one passenger, Armon Bassett, 27, after Pohlman was seen driving erratically.
Officers allegedly smelled marijuana and asked Pohlman to get out of the car. However, she struggled, and officers had to remind her to unfasten her seatbelt first, according to the report.
The report says Pohlman failed sobriety tests, and officers searched the car. In it they allegedly found a prescription bottle for Hydrocodone in her name, but the bottle contained Klonopin pills, one purple tablet that tested positive for MDMA — or Ecstasy — and two vials of an unspecified narcotic, which officers believed to be a date-rape drug.
The report said officers searched Bassett, who had a pair of handguns, $1,060 in cash, two baggies of marijuana and an unlabeled pill bottle containing Klonopin on him.
Pohlman was charged with first and second-degree possession of a controlled substance, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving on a suspended or revoked license, failure to surrender a revoked license and failure to maintain insurance.
Bassett was charged with trafficking in marijuana, third-degree possession of a controlled substance and prescription for a controlled substance not in a proper container.
