The following information was provided by the Canton Township and Plymouth Township police departments. Arrests do not indicate convictions.
Canton Township Police responded Aug. 16 to Warren and Lilley after being instructed to be on the lookout for a white van traveling eastbound on Warren Road near Morton Taylor Road swerving in and out of traffic, according to a police report.
Police stopped the vehicle on the side of the road at Warren west of Haggerty, the report said, and the driver told police he was trying to figure out where he was going.
The man had papers in his hands and told police he was working and is new to the area. According to the report, the man appeared confused and officers noticed the smell of marijuana emanating from the vehicle. The driver gave police consent to search his vehicle, but reached over to the passenger side of the vehicle to grab something. Police instructed the man to get out of his car, then retrieved a bag of marijuana the man was apparently trying to hide.
Police apprehended the driver and when searching him found a container of white pills appearing to be Vicodin in a non-prescription container, and also found several blue pills in his pocket.
In total, police recovered 4.6 grams of marijuana, 31 Vicodin pills, seven Diazepam pills and five Aleve pills. The Vicodin and Diazepam pills both are classified as narcotics, the report said.
Once back at the station, the man agreed to give a blood sample for a chemical test, the report said, which was sent to Michigan State Police labs for testing.
