Man Volunteers Weed Stash to Bayside Police

When asked if there was anything in the car that shouldn't be, this 20-year-old just gave police a solemn nod of the head, then handed over his stash.

A 20-year-old Milwaukee man voluntarily gave up his marijuana stash when police pulled him over for suspended registration Thursday evening. 

According to the report:

At 10:42 p.m. Bayside police were traveling north on Port Washington Road when they ran the plates of a passing car. The vehicle's registration was suspended due to emissions. Officers made a u-turn and pulled the car over in the 100 block of West Brown Deer Road.

While speaking with the driver, police could smell marijuana emanating from inside the car. When they asked the driver if there was anything in the car that shouldn’t be, he just gave a quiet nod. He also admitted that he had a baggie of marijuana stuffed in his left sock and voluntarily turned that over to police.

While searching the car, officers found a glass, purple pipe that was still warm to the touch, and a black pouch containing another glass pipe lying in the center armrest. The baggie tested positive for marijuana and the driver was arrested for possession of THC and drug paraphernalia. At the station, officers noted the driver’s eyes were droopy, glassy and bloodshot and his clothes smelled like marijuana.

He was released to his father at 12:52 p.m.

Note to all kids who find themselves in similar situations: Step one, open window. Step two, throw paraphernalia out of said window. Do not do this during the day, as it will be obvious. However, the cover of night allows for easy dumping of "illegal" materials. Continuing on that point, if you are going to "roadie" or smoke while driving, don't use a glass pipe. Smoke a joint. That way, you can still tell the cop the truth if he smells anything. But the joint will be long gone. Remember, it's illegal to possess, but not illegal to have consumed.
