Police arrested a Crimmins Road man for possession of marijuana, intent to sell, and possession of drug paraphernalia on Sunday, Jan. 13. Police said at 1:30 a.m., a patrol officer saw a 2001 GMC Sierra parked in front of the office building at 53 Old King’s Highway North. While approaching the vehicle, the officer saw a person, who it was later determined to be Connor Cicero, 19, sleeping in the driver’s seat.
When awakened, Cicero told police that he wanted to park near the highway and listen to music. The officer detected the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle’s passenger compartment, police said, and also saw a 12-inch bong placed on the center console in plain view. During a search of the vehicle, officers found four additional smoking devices. On the rear seat, police found a duffel bag which contained a digital scale, grinder and assorted packaging materials, police said. The total amount of marijuana found was approximately six grams. Cicero was placed under arrest and subsequently released on a written promise to appear. He has court on Thursday, Jan. 24.
Possession of pot of less than 14 grams is generally considered an infraction, unless other drug-related charges apply, police said.
