Four teens got more than they bargained for when officers caught them with a car full of drug paraphernalia and a half-eaten pan of pot brownies.
According to the report:
While on patrol in the 7600 block of North Port Washington Road at 2 a.m. on March 9, a officer noticed a car turn quickly onto West Bayfield Road, driving down the wrong side and then straddling the center-line.
When the officer began speaking with the driver, a 16-year-old from River Hills, he noticed the teen had alcohol on his breath. The officer asked if there was alcohol in the car and the he said his parents may store alcohol in the car. When the officer said he didn’t believe that, the passenger, a a 17-year-old from Glendale, opened up the glove box and handed over a one-liter bottle of Ouzo alcohol, admitting it was his.
When asked if there were any drugs in the car, the same teen produced a black zippered case with marijuana inside. There were two, 15-year-old girls in the backseat and one produced a pastel-colored, zippered make-up case and a multicolored jewelry box that she said had marijuana and a pipe inside. The other girl handed over a clear sandwich baggie that she said had marijuana in it and a bottle of Mountain Dew that she said had vodka in it.
Officers searched the vehicle and found a sleeping bag that had a glass water bong inside it. They also found a 9x13 pan, three-quarters full of brownies in it. The passenger admitted the brownies contained marijuana.
All but the driver were arrested for possession of a controlled substance - THC and one of the girls was arrested for drug paraphernalia. The passenger who claimed the bottle was also cited for underage drinking possession.
