As reported by the Charlotte Observer:

Aroma of pot leads to man's arrest

Staff Writer

A Granite Falls man applying for a gun permit at the Sheriff's Office last week was charged with drug possession after authorities smelled marijuana wafting from his body.

Dennis Lee Vines Jr., 25, was visiting the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office Thursday morning when a administrative assistant smelled marijuana, authorities said.

"The odor was so overpowering that it soon filled hallways," according to a press release from the Sheriff's Office.

The canine team was called, and a German shepherd named Kilo sniffed the outside of Vines' 2001 Dodge Dakota pickup, which was parked in the Sheriff Office parking lot. Kilo found two small bags of marijuana, two marijuana cigarettes and two packs of rolling papers, authorities said.

"We see it all in this business," Sheriff Alan Jones said.

Vines was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors. He was released on a $850 bond and is scheduled to make his first court appearance May 7.
