AMES – An Ames was nabbed by cops with plenty of illegal weed after a pursuit in that community.
On Tuesday, April 27, Iowa State University police officers stopped a vehicle near the intersection of Harris Street and Bellflower Drive for failure to obey a traffic light and equipment violations. As officers approached the vehicle, the driver, Domoh D. Domoh – age 20 from Ames – drove off before officers were able to make contact.
