Police Report: A Pot Pullover in Fox Point

These two kept telling police there was nothing in the car, but officers found a couple of pipes, prescription bottle and a baggie with marijuana in it.

A 17 and 18-year-old were both arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia after found rolling papers, a pipe and more in the car. 

According to the report:

A Fox Point officer was watching traffic in the 7700 block of North Port Washington Road around midnight on June 8 when he noticed a vehicle without the taillights on. The officer pulled it over and immediately noticed the smell of burned marijuana.

Officers asked the driver, an 18-year-old from Fox Point, if there were any narcotics in the car and if he’d been smoking. He looked away and said there was nothing illegal in the car. The officer said he could smell the marijuana and the driver said he’d just left a party where people were smoking so it was coming from his clothes.

Officers asked him to get out of the car and he continued to tell officers there was nothing illegal in the car. The report says the driver seemed very nervous and repeatedly looked away from police when he spoke. Police searched the driver and found a lighter and rolling papers. They also searched the vehicle and found a blue metal pipe, commonly used to smoke marijuana, with residue and a green plastic prescription bottle with trace amounts of green plant material in the driver’s side door which later tested positive for THC. They also found a plastic baggie containing a green leafy substance and a multi-colored glass pipe, commonly used for smoking marijuana, under the front seat. The pipe also tested positive for THC.

The driver was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia and the passenger, a 17-year-old from Glendale, was arrested for possession of THC and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Yeah, let's keep busting our kids for using harmless amounts of marijuana, ensuring that their lives are screwed for the rest of their days. Hopefully they will get felony convictions and won't ever be able to vote, a big plus for the GOTP.
