Read an Excerpt

Study the following narrative for five minutes. Do not exceed the time allowance. When your time is up, turn to questions 1-10 without making further reference to this reading.

At 1845 hours on February 11, 1997, State Patrol officers Denise Williams, badge number 1419, and Curt Hansen, badge number 8725, pulled up behind a disabled 1993 Ford Aerostar van parked on the shoulder of Brice Canyon Freeway. When Officer Williams approached the driver to inquire about the problem and offer roadside assistance, if needed, Officer Hansen ran a standard computer check on the van's license plate number AVL-653 for any existing wants and warrants. The driver of the van, Rick Porter, told Officer Williams that they had simply ran out of gas. He also insisted that their assistance was not necessary because another friend was already en route to a nearby filling station to get some gas. When the records search came up that the van was, in fact, reported to be stolen, both the driver and lone passenger in the front seat of the van, Sarah Conners, were placed under arrest for being in possession of a stolen vehicle. At the same time the suspects were being placed in the back seat of the patrol vehicle, a 1989 Ford Mustang GT, license number BOK-151, pulled up behind them. Assuming this was the friend the driver of the van made reference to, Officer Hansen approached the driver and requested to see his license and registration. While inspecting the documents, he asked the driver, Martin Brooks, if he was aware that the van belonging to his friend was stolen. He responded rather flippantly that it was news to him, but anyone who would even contemplate stealing an Aerostar deserved to go to jail anyway! There was a five gallon gas can in plain view on the back seat as well as a small black nylon duffel bag on the front passenger seat. As a backup unit arrived to assist, Officer Hansen asked the driver to step out of the vehicle to allow for a pat-down search. Nothing of significance was found on his person. However, the duffel bag contained incriminating drug paraphernalia as well as five unwrapped bricks of marijuana. Brooks was placed under arrest for possession of controlled substances. Backup State Patrol officer Vernon Fuller, badge number 1458, took custodial responsibility of the suspect.
The subsequent search of the van turned up a brown colored leather fanny pack beneath the front passenger seat containing $3,750.00 in cash and close to half a pound of suspected methamphetamines. Additionally, a cache of weapons were discovered beneath the driver's seat which included a Colt Python .357 Magnum revolver, Smith and Wesson Model 19 .38 special revolver, and a Series 80 Colt Mark IV .45 pistol with two spare seven-round clips. The driver did not have a concealed weapons permit so, in addition to narcotics trafficking and auto theft, he was also charged with illegal possession of concealed firearms. Both vehicles were impounded for state's evidence and the three suspects were transported to Evans County Adult Detention for intake and booking. The incident was assigned arrest report number 6781 and filed with Lieutenant Howard Pope, badge number 1580 (acting desk officer for District 3 of the State Patrol) at 2115 hours.
