Marijuana possession, Bagley Road: A Brook Park man, 20, was cited at about 12:30 a.m. Jan. 13 after police caught him with a bag of marijuana in the backseat of an overloaded Mercury Cougar.
Police saw the Cougar drift out of its lane while turning left from North Rocky River Drive onto Bagley. The car then pulled into a CVS Pharmacy parking lot. Officers stopped the Cougar in the lot.
The car contained one woman passenger in the front seat and four passengers – three men and a woman – in the backseat. The woman in the backseat was sitting on the lap of one of the men. The front-seat passenger owned the Cougar but her license had been suspended.
Police smelled marijuana in the car. One of the backseat passengers said he had smoked marijuana before his friends picked him up in the Cougar. “You can probably see it in my eyes,” he said.
Officers found the bag of marijuana in the rear pocket of the front passenger seat. A second backseat passenger – later identified as the 20-year-old Brook Park man – admitted the marijuana was his.
Police also cited the Cougar’s driver for an improper left turn. One of the backseat passengers volunteered to walk home so that the five remaining passengers would each have a seat belt.
