Marijuana Odor Leads to Two Men in Possession of Fraudulent Credit Cards and Fake IDs

Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – A vigilant police officer patrolling a mall parking lot noticed a marijuana odor coming from a car, which eventually led to the arrest of two men in possession of fraudulent credit cards, stolen property, and fake drivers licenses. On Saturday, February 18, 2017 around 4:10 p.m., an officer noticed an odor of marijuana emitting from a car parked near Yankee Candle in Providence Marketplace and made contact with the occupant.

The occupant, 29-year-old Dominique Holmes of Georgia, was detained, and officers found a baggy of marijuana, pills, credit cards with different names, and fake drivers licenses from Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, and California in the car. Further investigation revealed there was another occupant in the car, and he was tracked down inside the Providence 14 movie theater nearby. 26-year-old Gregory Grant of Georgia was attempting to hide from officers in the theater, but he was unsuccessful.
