The following information was provided by the Canton Township Police Department. Arrests do not indicate convictions.

Canton Township Police arrested a man for possession of marijuana and paraphernalia after 9 p.m. Oct. 23 near the intersection of Rockefeller Drive and South Scenic Circle, according to a police report.

The officer observed a silver Jeep Liberty stop at a stop sign on Central Park Boulevard approaching Rockefeller Drive, the report said. The officer noticed the driver's side brake light was out and stopped the vehicle, the report said. The officer said he smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle, but the driver said there wasn't any when asked, the report said.

The officer asked for a second officer and his police dog for assistance, according to the report. While waiting, the officer told the driver he could smell the odor of marijuana coming from the car. The man said he used to smoke marijuana so the car still had the smell, the report said.

The police dog made a positive indication for drugs in the vehicle and indicated it strongly on the passenger side, where another man was sitting, the report said. The men were removed from the car and searched.

The second officer located a multicolored glass pipe and metal grinder in the front passenger door map pocket and both items had suspected marijuana residue, the report said. The officer also located a small bag containing an amount of suspected marijuana under the gearshift cover, according to the report.

The officer arrested the passenger who admitted that the items were his, the report said. The substance was tested positive for marijuana. The man was given a hearing for Nov. 11 at 35th District Court.
