Two Rochester residents were arrested Friday night after Rochester police reportedly found more than 50 ecstasy pills in a vehicle following a traffic stop.
An officer on patrol around 11:30 p.m. Friday in the area of Sixth Street Southeast and 13th Avenue Southeast saw a 2000 Mercedes Benz fail to turn into the proper lane of traffic following a right turn, Lt. Mike Sadauskis said.
When the officer approached the vehicle, he reported that he could smell marijuana. When additional officers arrived, the driver and his three passengers were removed from the vehicle so it could be searched.
On the floorboard of the front passenger seat, an officer located an open bottle of Hennessy liquor and a fanny pack that contained 51 ecstasy tablets stamped with various symbols, including Superman, the Playboy bunny, a lightning bolt, a dolphin and Hello Kitty, Sadauskis said.
The person that had been in that seat, identified as 19-year-old Victoria Lilliana King, was arrested and will likely be charged with second-degree controlled substance crime-sales, third-degree controlled substance crime-possession as well as charges relating to consuming alcohol underage, according to Sadauskis.
Another passenger, 35-year-old Terry Izeal Heggs, was arrested on a felony warrant out of Olmsted County, Sadauskis said.
Police also found about four grams of marijuana in the car.
