ALBANY — An officer with an acute sense of smell led to an arrest on drug charges.

An Albany Police Officer smelled what he thought was marijuana coming from a vehicle Sunday afternoon.  The officer attempted to stop the car, but the driver parked and attempted to leave the scene.

However, the officer caught the suspect and proceeded to search the car, finding more than 5 pounds of marijuana and over $14,000 in cash inside.  He also discovered a gun hidden under the seat.

Lashonda Lewis, Charles Walters, and Shonteria Barrance were all arrested on possession charges with intent to distribute.  In addition, Walters was charged with possession of a firearm.
