Police Officers regularly use their senses to help them do their jobs. The use of sight and hearing are obvious, but the sense of smell can also help to detect crime.
On 10/26/11 an officer used his nose while on the front step of an Overland Park residence. The distinct odor of marijuana was wafting through the air. After talking to the resident, the officer decided to obtain a search warrant for the home.
The officers executed the warrant and found contraband causing the smell. No arrests were made at that time, but we are confident they will be forthcoming.
This is an example of good police work and a job well done by all the officers involved.
