A couple of rookie NYPD cops and a sergeant in Brooklyn followed their nose and busted a driver with a stash of marijuana in his car, officials said.

Sgt. Larry Meyers was training Officers Mario Bueno and Thomas Owens in Prospect Lefferts Gardens when they drove by a man who was about to get into his Chevy Suburban at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

But they grew suspicious when he hesitated as they passed so they stopped to investigate.

When they got near his SUV in front of 203 Parkside Ave., they smelled the distinct odor of reefer, police spokesman Sgt. Lee Jones said.

“He acted quite strangely when they passed him and then they smelled that strong odor of marijuana,” Jones said.

When they looked inside the vehicle, they spotted what appeared to be pot in the console.

They searched the vehicle and found three large bags and 120 small Ziploc baggies of marijuana and eight oxycodone pills, police said.

Errol Taylor, 58, was charged with criminal possession of marijuana, criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of pot.
