Canton Township Police arrested a woman on charges of possessing marijuana and driving with a suspended license 8:06 a.m. Jan. 8 near the intersection of Ford and North Lilley roads, according to a police report.

The officer noticed the driver’s side brake tail light was broken on a black 1999 Toyota Solara heading eastbound on Ford Road and the paper plate in the rear window was faded and illegible, the report said.

When stopped by the officer, the driver said her wallet was stolen a few days before and she did not have her Michigan driver’s license or any other form of identification, according to the report.

Upon further investigation, the officer discovered the woman had a suspended driver’s license because of previous violations such as driving without a valid license, the report said. She also had three warrants, including $5,000 owed in Detroit for having an improper license, according to the report.

The officer smelled the scent of marijuana coming from the vehicle, the report said, but the woman said she didn’t have any. The officer arrested her for the warrants and on charges of driving with a suspended license, according to the report.

The officer searched the vehicle and found a small plastic baggie in the left side of the glove box, containing a green leafy substance. The woman said the bag belonged to her boyfriend but later at the station declined to give his name, the report said.

The officer confiscated the illegible paper plate, issued a new paper plate and had her vehicle towed, according to the report, and the woman was given a court date for Jan. 22 at 35th District Court.
