Lincoln Police stopped a 2007 Chrysler Town and Country just after midnight Thursday after observing an improper turn at 18th and A Street. When officers contacted the driver, a strong odor of marijuana was coming from the vehicle. The officers asked the two occupants to exit the vehicle so a search could be completed.
The driver, Robert Harms, 47 years old, was found to have a container with what was believed to be THC wax residue on his person. The passenger, Austin Proctor, 19 years old, had a pill bottle and a bag with 2.6 grams of marijuana on his person. Upon finding these items, Proctor decided to run from officers in an attempt to get away.
