Ocoee police served two suspects marijuana possession charges.
by: Zak Kerr Staff Writer/Reporter


JAN. 23

A.D. Mims Road and Carriage Oak Court. Drug possession. Officers were parked near the intersection around 1:53 a.m., when they saw a vehicle with no tag light. They stopped the car and learned its tag had expired in September. The car smelled like marijuana, so a search ensued. Officers found a grinder, cigarillos and plastic with marijuana paraphernalia, so they issued the driver a notice to appear in court on cannabis possession charges.

JAN. 25

West Franklin Street. Drug possession. At about 8:30 p.m., an officer stopped a car for following another too closely. The officer smelled cannabis in the vehicle, so he searched and found 12.6 grams’ worth of cannabis baggies in a liquor container and $145 in small bills. The passenger was under arrest on drug possession charges and later admitted he had another baggie in his left sock.
