On March 7 between 11:52 a.m. and 1:19 p.m., a man was seen driving slowly through the Barkland dog park, but he did not stop and exited the area. The sergeant located the suspect vehicle and initiated a traffic stop, as he failed to maintain a single lane and was not wearing his seat belt. Upon making contact, the strong odor of cannabis detected. Post miranda, he admitted to the possession of cannabis. A vehicle inventory revealed a window-punch, which he later confessed to intending to use to break into a car at Barkland.
