If police officers need to have a nose for crime-fighting, then officers with Guelph police certainly passed that test on Wednesday during a traffic stop in the south end.
Guelph police said a vehicle was pulled over at around 12:30 a.m. in the area of Clair Road and Gordon Street.
According to a news release, officers could smell freshly burnt cannabis emitting from the vehicle during the traffic stop.
Officers then searched the vehicle and allegedly found over 30 grams of illegal cannabis.
A 28-year-old man was arrested and charged with several drug-related offences including possession for the purpose of trafficking.
The accused was later released on a promise to appear in court in November.
