Alpahretta woman gets stopped for suspicious behavior



ALPHARETTA, Ga. – A suspicious vehicle led to the arrest of a 19-year-old Roswell woman March 5 for drug offenses.

A police officer on patrol noticed the vehicle of Alexandria Marie Raffa, 19, of Shallowford Road, Roswell, stopped at a traffic light on Mansell Road about 4 a.m. When the light turned green, the vehicle did not move.

The officer noted he could see Raffa looking “intently” at the patrol car and looked as if she hid something.

Thinking something illegal – possibly a DUI – the officer pulled over Raffa’s car.

Speaking with Raffa, the officer noted a strong smell of marijuana as well as freshly sprayed perfume, commonly used to mask the smell of pot.

When asked, Raffa allegedly admitted to the presence of drugs in the car. A search turned up a glass pipe and some pot. The officer also notes in the report the presence of “numerous” plastic baggies containing marijuana as well as loose marijuana scattered throughout the vehicle. There were also numerous marijuana cigarette remains.

Raffa was arrested for possession of marijuana and driving on a class D license.
