And Your Daddy’s Little Girl

Amherst – Talk about following in your father’s footsteps – Officers from the Amherst Police Department stopped a white Cadillac on Route 2 last Thursday night for various traffic offenses.

As the officer approached the Caddy, he immediately noticed the odor of raw marijuana coming from the interior of the vehicle. The driver, who was identified as 53 year old Harry Terrell Jr. of Toledo, was removed from the vehicle along with his daughter, 24 year old Nicole Terrell, also of Toledo.

Harry Terrell Jr. was found to be driving on a suspended license and also had active warrants through the Cleveland Police Department and Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Office. He was immediately placed under arrest and secured in the rear of a Police car.

Once Nicole Terrell was removed from the vehicle, Officers discovered a loaded semi-automatic pistol between where the driver and passenger were sitting.

Both father and daughter were then transported to the Amherst Police Department along with their Caddy where the K-9 unit utilized K-9 Bandit to conduct a sniff of the vehicle. Bandit alerted on several areas of the vehicle including the trunk. Inside the trunk, a large black bag containing approximately 31.13 lbs of a green leafy vegetable substance was located, which later field tested positive for the presence of THC (marijuana). The green leafy vegetable matter was individually packaged into one pound bags. An undisclosed amount of money was also seized.

While Mr. Terrell was being booked into the city jail, he became combative and fought with several Officers. One Officer suffered minor injuries.

Nicole Terrell was charged with Trafficking in Marijuana, Possession of Marijuana and Drug Paraphernalia. She was transported to the Lorain County Jail pending her appearance in Oberlin Municipal Court the following morning.
