CHESTERTON | Muffins and cookies made with hash oil were confiscated along with marijuana from a Liberty Township woman who was found passed out Saturday night downtown, police said.

Samantha Leverett, 32, was charged with possession of marijuana, dealing marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a common nuisance.

Police said Leverett's car was found running on Calumet Road near the intersection with Broadway. Police said Leverett was found with her head tilted back and her mouth open and didn't initially respond when an officer knocked on the window.

Police said she eventually woke up, and a strong odor of marijuana was noticed when she rolled down the car window.

"The smell was so overwhelming I had to take a step back just to take in a breath of fresh air," wrote the officer.

According to police, Leverett told police there was marijuana in the car. During a search of the car, police found the marijuana along with plastic zip-type sandwich bags.

Officers also found muffins, cookies and candy, which Leverett said were made with hash oil, police said.

Police said a total of 766 grams of marijuana was confiscated from Leverett's car.

Police field tested the plant material and the food items, and all tested positive as marijuana or its active ingredient.

Police also confiscated $1,510 and other drug paraphernalia.
