Cops: Greensburg woman had 1 pound of pot in car, led officers to larger stash at home

December 3, 2018

State police allege a Greensburg driver pulled over for a traffic violation on Route 66 had more than 1 pound of marijuana sitting “in open view” on the floor of her car on Aug. 24 and then led troopers to a larger stash inside her home.

Police said in court documents filed Wednesday with District Judge Chris Flanigan that after Ashley A. Brawley, 32, was stopped on Route 66 North in Greensburg for illegally tinted windows, she handed suspected packaged marijuana out the window of her 2010 Nissan Sentra to Trooper Anthony Arbaczewski.

Arbaczewski, a member of the Troop A Community Enforcement Team, said when Brawley was questioned, she led police to her residence on the 400 block of Westminster Avenue where troopers confiscated another 6 pounds of contraband.

Brawley was arraigned Wednesday before Flanigan on charges filed by state police of possession and delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was released on $20,000 unsecured bond pending a preliminary hearing Nov. 29.
