Lincoln police say they caught three teenagers with marijuana, THC wax and vape pens.

It started with a traffic stop Saturday at about 9:30 p.m. near 27th and Superior streets.

Officer Erin Spilker said police stopped 18-year-old Porter Wilkins for an expired license plate, smelled marijuana coming from the Toyota Camry and saw two open bottles of Patron on the floorboard when they asked him to get out.

The smell of marijuana led to a search, which Spilker said turned up just less than a pound of marijuana in heat-sealed bags, 81 THC vape pens, seven wax jars, 14 THC syrup containers, 66 THC cartridges and a real-looking BB gun in backpacks in the back seat.

Spilker said the street value was more than $11,200.
