Here’s Steven Hubbard, the genius who walked into an Indiana State Police post smelling to high heaven of weed. He was there to pick up his belongings, but got picked up himself.

‚ÄčAn Indiana man was arrested on drug charges Monday while picking up his belongings at a State Police post, because “an odor of burned marijuana” was smelled on and around him, police said.

While it would seem pretty basic not to show up at a police station smelling to high heaven of weed, evidently that was too much to ask of Steven Hubbard, 22, of New Albany, Ind.

Just before 4 p.m. on Monday, Hubbard was picking up items he said belonged to him at the Indiana State Police Post in Sellersburg, reports Matthew Thomas at WLKY.
After Indiana State Police personnel noticed he smelled like weed, they sent “Kilo,” a K-9 drug-sniffing dog, to give Hubbard’s car a walk-around while he dealt with troopers and an evidence clerk inside, reports Matt Thacker at the Jeffersonville News and Tribune.
When Kilo alerted on the 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo that Hubbard had driven to the post, according to officers, they searched the car and found marijuana and $600 in cash.
Hubbard was arrested for possession of marijuana, under 30 grams, a misdemeanor, and possession of marijuana with a prior conviction, a felony.

He was taken to Clark County Jail (formally known as the Michael L. Becher Adult Corrections Complex), where he is cooling his heels and awaiting his first court appearance.
