8:48pm       3000 blk Mission           Narcotics
Officers Gomez and Archilla were out patrolling when they saw a man driving on his cell phone. They conducted a traffic stop due to the vehicle code violation and asked the driver for his license. The suspect stated that his driving license was somewhere in his car and started looking in his glove box. He brought out a wooden box and told the officers that his license was probably inside. However, when he opened the box, a strong odor came out and there were three large bags of marijuana inside. Due to the officers’ vigorous training and experience in marijuana related cases, they were able to identify the appearance and odor as marijuana. The suspect was asked to exit his car and he agreed. Officer Gomez searched the front part of the vehicle and found several notebooks containing transactions for marijuana and a scale to measure the substance. The officers couldn’t search the back of the car due to a large pit bull in the backseat. Officer Archilla requested Animal Care and Control to control the dog and Officers Cassinelli, Pereira, and Sergeant Riskin arrived to assist in the investigation. In addition, Officer Archilla requested an SFPD K-9 narcotics dog to find more drugs in the car. The K-9 narcotics dog was successfully able to locate more marijuana. Officer Gomez asked the suspect if he had a medical marijuana card and proper documentation for a medical marijuana business. The suspect provided two unverifiable photocopies of a possible business and a non-San Francisco, non-verifiable medical marijuana card. The suspect was transported to Ingleside Station and booked for possession of marijuana with intent to sell and for the initial traffic violation of using a cell phone while driving.
