What started as a routine traffic stop ends with a big marijuana bust in Evansville late last night.

Officers pulled a driver over on Walnut St. between New York Ave. and Kentucky Ave. When they got out of the car, they noticed a strong smell of marijuana coming from a nearby home.

Inside, they say someone dropped a bag of marijuana through a hole in the floor into a business below. Officers recovered at least $1,500 worth of drugs.

Six people were taken into custody.
