Upon arrival, Sgt. Dusty Hailey and Hopper found a white Ford Excursion parked next to the garden center. There were two females standing next to the vehicle and the owner was begging for money near the Walmart entrance.

The women said the vehicle had ran out of diesel and they needed assistance getting it started.

While checking for warrants, Hailey noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

He searched the vehicle and found a metal baking pot that contained 15.2 pounds of marijuana wax, a bank pouch that contained individual packaged hashish that weighed 3.2 ounces and 12 grams of marijuana in separate containers along with pipes and bongs that had residue in them.

Each person denied ownership of the drugs, but admitted to using marijuana and other drugs.

Self was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia with the intent to deliver, sell or manufacture and felony possession of drug paraphernalia.

Yamamoto was charged with felony possession of drug paraphernalia and manufacturing/delivery/sell of a controlled substance.

Giguere was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia with the intent to deliver, sell or manufacture and felony possession of drug paraphernalia. She was also charged with criminal impersonation for providing the wrong name when asked by deputies.
