Daniel Sullivan, 18, of 521 Hollow Tree Ridge Road, Darien, was given an infraction for possession of less than half an ounce of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
A New Canaan officer patrolling the Talmadge Hill train station area at 8:30 p.m. observed a vehicle parked on the upper-level parking lot with the headlights on, according to the report. As the officer approached the car, he smelled an odor of marijuana and saw Sullivan bending down and trying to put something under the passenger's seat, police said.
When asked what he was doing, Sullivan showed a plastic water bottle with a plastic bag containing marijuana as well as a marijuana vaporizer, according to the report. The teen also had a metal grinder with a small amount of marijuana in it, police said.
The officer then started questioning the driver, Dardis, and asked him to take off his shoes, where the officer found a fake Maryland driver's license that claimed was Dardis 21 years old, according to the report. After that, the other passenger, McCann, opened his wallet and produced a forged Ohio license that made him 22 years old, police said.
Dardis and McCann were released on a promise to appear in court June 3.
