If police officers need to have a nose for crime-fighting, then officers with Guelph police certainly passed that test on Wednesday during a traffic stop in the south end.

Guelph police said a vehicle was pulled over at around 12:30 a.m. in the area of Clair Road and Gordon Street.

According to a news release, officers could smell freshly burnt cannabis emitting from the vehicle during the traffic stop.
