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

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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
