WINOOSKI Three Michigan residents are facing drug charges and a 2-year-old girl is in protective custody after a Vermont police officer smelled marijuana while following the car they were riding in in the city of Winooski.

After the vehicle was stopped, police discovered more than two ounces of crack cocaine and a small amount of marijuana.
