Bradenton Beach police followed their noses to make an early morning arrest in the 2500 block of Gulf Drive.
Kaly Gieseking, 21, of Jacksonville, was arrested at 3:12 a.m. Aug. 18 for possessing more than 20 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia after police smelled marijuana coming from a vehicle stopped in the roadway “with no other persons or cars in the area,” according to a BBPD report.
Police next followed Gieseking’s vehicle as it turned on 28th Street North and onto Avenue C, where it parked in a driveway in the 2700 block.
All occupants exited the vehicle and a search of the car turned up 27.2 grams of marijuana and a bong in the trunk.
Gieseking told police the marijuana was hers. The vehicle was towed.
She was transported to the Manatee County jail and was released on a $2,000 bond.
Gieseking’s arraignment will be at 9 a.m. Friday, Sept. 22, at the Manatee County Judicial Center, 1051 Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton.
