Police say they were called to the 7-Eleven store at Halsted and Roscoe on September 18th after someone reported a suspicious, unoccupied truck had been parked on the lot without permission for several hours. Uh, you know what? Maybe we'll just let the dry wording of the police report take over from here:
While reporting officer conducted surveillance, [Hannah Cousins] approached to enter said vehicle. Subject was stopped and field interviewed. Subject stated she drove the truck to the location to do shopping at area stores and stated she could park anywhere she pleased.
During field interview, reporting officer observed a glass pipe utilized for the ingestion of cannabis, decorated with a green glass frog symbol, known as "drug paraphernalia"...sitting on the driver seat.
Subject stated, "Can I just receive a ticket for possession of it?"
Subject transported to [19th district] for processing.Cousins, whose request to be merely ticketed was declined, is free on an I-bond.
