Trooper Levi Jensen allegedly smelled marijuana inside the vehicle and cuffed the driver. Inside the vehicle he reported finding about $20,000 in U.S. currency inside a bag. He also reported finding 2.5 ounces of marijuana in a coffee can, several pieces of rolling papers and a small paste-like substance on wax paper identified as hashish — a resin that can be extracted from the cannabis plant.

Lambert is charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of 1 ounce of marijuana but less than a half-pound with the intent to distribute. Each charge carries a maximum of five years in prison, a $10,000 fine or both. She is also charged with possession of 2 ounces but less than a half-pound of marijuana, which carries a maximum of two years in prison, a $4,000 fine or both, and is charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Smith was also arrested and charged with the same crimes as Lambert.
