WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Wichita Falls police arrested two people for various charges following a late night traffic stop.

Around 8:55 p.m. on Friday, officers pulled over a car with a male passenger and female driver.

While speaking with passenger, officers observed a strong and distinct odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle.

Police then conducted a probable cause search and found a brown leather tote bag in the backseat.  Inside the bag, officers found that it was lined with orange and teal duct tape and pealed back the lining to find tin foil, which police say is typically done to shield stolen property from theft detection devices.

Officers also found a pair of small wire cutters to cut theft detection devices from clothing, as well as four clothing items and a watch with tags.  Neither suspect could provide a receipt for any of the items.

Police say the male passenger also had a brown Calvin Klein backpack in the floor between his legs.  The bag contained 14 baggies of marijuana, weighing 14.03 ounces.

The male passenger, 19-year-old Charleston Denman, was charged with Possession of Marijuana > 4 Oz <= 5 Lbs and Possession in a Drug Free Zone.

The female driver, 21-year-old Shadazha Williams, was charged with Possession, Manufacturing or Distributing of Instruments Used to Commit Retail Theft.

Both have since been released from jail.
