During the stop, the officer apparently smelled suspected marijuana, and searched the car and its three occupants. The two passengers, Stifanos Daniel, 18, and Samuel Fesseha Dawit, 20, both of Virginia, were both issued criminal citations for possession of a controlled dangerous substance, after small amounts of suspected marijuana was allegedly found on them.
