Police cited a Virginia woman with simple possession of marijuana after her vehicle was reported stolen. An officer was behind the vehicle and checked the license plate, which had an alert on it, a report said.

Salisbury Police also cited Jamie Vinson, 36, of the 1300 block of Fisherman’s Road, Norfolk, Va., with having an open container of alcohol in the vehicle.

A report said Vinson was traveling at North Long and East Innes streets around 4 p.m. on Saturday. Her vehicle was pulled over in the Waffle House parking lot. There were a total of five people in the vehicle. The officer searched the vehicle and discovered a pink stun gun inside a purse, an open container of Absolute Vodka and 3.3 grams of marijuana inside, the report said.

Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said the car did have an alert that it was stolen, but the vehicle did in fact belong to Vinson. She said it apparently had been recovered.
