The officer approached the man and could smell marijuana.

While on patrol in the area of Regions Bank, an officer was advised by a bank manager that two suspects sitting at the bus stop in front of the bank had been acting suspicious. She said the men had come into the bank and tried to cash checks valued at $830. The suspects were told they could only deposit the checks. The complainant said that after depositing the checks, the men came back in the bank to use the rest room, but appeared nervous. The officer spoke with them at the bus stop, asked for identification, and one of their driver’s licenses was suspended. The officer confiscated the license. The bank later called HBPD to report one of checks as lacking funds for deposit. The men were charged with depositing an item with intent to defraud.
