A South Bend woman was arrested for operating while intoxicated and possession of marijuana after she drove herself to the Indiana State Police Bremen Post earlier this week.

On February 5, 2018, around 4:00 p.m., Rosanda Taylor, 33, drove her 1996 Suburban to the Indiana State Police Bremen Post to get a VIN check completed on a vehicle she was towing behind the Suburban, according to a state police report.

While a state trooper was talking to Taylor inside the post about the VIN check, he smelled the odor of marijuana and he noticed signs of impairment, according to state police.

The trooper used his K9 partner for a free air sniff on the two vehicles. The K9 alerted to the odor of narcotics in both vehicles, state police reported.

A search of the Suburban found a partially smoked hand-rolled cigarette of suspected marijuana, state police reported.

Taylor was arrested on preliminary charges of possession of marijuana and operating while intoxicated and was taken to the Marshall County Jail.
