Political Debates
Do you plan to attend any of the political debates planned throughout the county in the coming weeks?

Pictured above from left are Deputy Scott Parker, Sheriff Ray Cross, Deputy Eric Hartline and Sgt. Matt Cole with the $30,656 in cash that was confiscated in a traffic stop on Jan. 10.

A routine traffic stop last week by the Dade County Sheriff’s Department resulted in the confiscation of a large sum of cash and one person charged with possession of marijuana less than one ounce and following to close.

Charged was 25 year old Lailaa Yaasmeen Woods Green of Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Deputy Eric Hartline was traveling west on I-24 observed a Chevy Malibu following very close to the vehicle in front of it on a wet roadway.

While speaking to the occupants Deputy Hartline detected the strong odor of raw marijuana coming from the vehicle.  When the occupants were asked about the odor the passenger, Christopher Henry stated he smoked some marijuana about an hour ago.

Deputy Hartline was joined by Sgt. Matt Cole and K-9 Deputy Scott Parker. A free air search using his K-9 partner Rossi resulted in a positive alert on the vehicle.

A search was then conducted and a box with what appeared to be a marijuana cigarette in a shoebox that Green admitted was hers.

Further searching revealed a bag and when opened several bundles of cash was found.

Both occupants denied any knowledge of the money and signed disclaimers of ownership and waiver of rights form stating that the currency was not theirs.

After Green was charged both subjects were released.

When deputies counted and secured the cash it amounted to $30,656.00.
