polie_blotter_logoSpeeding leads to underage pot citation
A teenager was cited for possession of marijuana after a silver Lexus was pulled over for going 42 in a 30-mph zone on Sportsman Club Road on June 20.
As a Bainbridge Island Police Department officer spoke with the 18-year-old female driver, he noticed a “strong odor of green (non-burned) marijuana,” according to a police report.
The officer asked the driver how much marijuana was in the car. She told him there was none, but there had been marijuana in the car previously.
The officer told the driver that she had to be 21 to possess pot, and asked her for the marijuana. She then pulled a small plastic bag with 5.4 grams of “a green leafy substance” out of her purse, before telling the officer, “I cannot believe I just gave you my marijuana.”
The driver was given a warning for speeding and a citation for the marijuana, according the police report.
