A Harrisburg woman has been charged with DUI following a traffic stop on Route 283 at 1:39 a.m. Sept. 7 after she allegedly crossed over the center and fog line.

According to the affidavit filed with District Judge Michael J. Smith, State Police smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle driven by Carly Jean Laird, 24.

She reportedly told the trooper that she smoked marijuana four hours prior. In the vehicle, the trooper found rolling papers and a wooden pipe containing marijuana residue, the affidavit said.

A blood sample was taken at the Dauphin County Booking Center; results were not reported.

She also was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and disregarding a traffic lane. Her preliminary hearing is Nov. 27.

A 26-year-old Steelton woman was driving on the pike. When she turned onto Rosedale Avenue, she collided with Dennis Snyder, 24, police said.
