A Liberty Township resident was arrested Saturday on a charge of dealing in marijuana after she was found in possession of candy and baked goods which tested positive for THC, Chesterton Police said.

According to police, at 3:14 a.m. an officer on patrol observed a woman subsequently identified as Samantha Elizabeth Leverett, 32, of 1712 Vail Drive, apparently “unconscious” in the driver’s seat of a vehicle stopped with its lights on in the area of South Calumet Road and Broadway.

The officer roused Leverett but on making contact with her detected an “overwhelming” odor of marijuana from the vehicle’s interior, police said.

Leverett admitted being in possession of marijuana and in a search of the vehicle the officer recovered the following: 624 grams of marijuana in separately wrapped baggies; and 33 pieces of strawberry, grape, and blueberry candy, three muffins, and two cookies which all field-tested positive for THC.

Also recovered from the vehicle, police said: $1,510 in U.S. currency, a metal grinder, and rolling papers.

Leverett advised that she prepared the food items found in her vehicle with hash oil, police said.

Leverett was charged with dealing in marijuana, possession of marijuana, maintaining a common nuisance, and possession of paraphernalia. She was transported to Porter County Jail.
