A 17-year-old Norwalk boy was cited with possession of marijuana after being caught during a traffic stop with a jar labeled “weed,” according to New Canaan Police Lt. Jason Ferraro.
An officer pulled over a car with New York plates on Park Street traveling 51 mph in a 30-mph zone, according to a report. On approaching the vehicle the officer detected the odor of marijuana, according to the report.
A subsequent search of the vehicle by K-9 Officer Apollo discovered marijuana in the center console, along with a blue mason jar in the front driver’s side door with the word “weed” on it with masking tape.
Inside the jar were two clear sandwich bags containing a green leafy substance resembling marijuana, as well as several burned marijuana cigarettes in the ashtray, according to the report.
In addition to possession of less than half an ounce of marijuana, the boy was issued a juvenile summons for traveling unreasonably fast, operating a motor vehicle without a license, and operating an unregistered motor vehicle, according to the report.
He was released on a promise to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford Wednesday, Dec. 9, according to the report.
