As the office was speaking to him, Rodriguez reportedly appeared extremely nervous and a strong odor of marijuana was coming from his car.

Rodriguez then told officers he had a marijuana pipe, but police found much more.

They discovered two grams of weed hidden inside M&M candy containers and a duffle bag containing 39 grams of marijuana in pre-packaged baggies and containers.
