When Owens was searched in the police’s system, he was discovered to have a suspended license after he failed to show proof of insurance in 2016.

During a search, Officers Gross and Cervantes recovered 24 grams of marijuana and a grinder in his vehicle as well as $554 on his person. The money and his vehicle were taken as evidence out of the officer’s assumption that they were obtained or used during the selling of narcotics.
