LITTLETON — Chief Matthew Pinard reports the Littleton Police Department issued summons to appear in court to a father and son from Maine after a traffic stop resulted in the seizure of more than 10 pounds of marijuana.
A 29-YEAR OLD MAN FROM BREWER, M.E. and a 49-YEAR-OLD MAN FROM HAMPDEN, M.E. were each issued a summons to court on charges of Possession of a Class D Drug (marijuana) and Possession of a Class D Drug With Intent to Distribute (marijuana).
On Thursday, Oct. 22 at approximately 5:30 p.m., Littleton Police pulled over a white 2011 Ford Transit Van near Archers Mobil Gas Station, 500 King St., after police determined that the registration on the vehicle had been revoked for insurance purposes. While speaking with the driver, later identified as the 29-YEAR-OLD MAN, officers could smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. The 49-YEAR-OLD MAN was a passenger in the vehicle.
As part of an on-scene investigation, officers searched the vehicle and subsequently located and seized a large amount of marijuana and other related items, including:
- Nine storage bags of marijuana, containing more than 10 pounds of the drug in total
- 40 distillates (cannabis extract)
- 20 packages of pre-rolled marijuana joints
- Eight bottles of marijuana-infused drinks
The two will be arraigned at a later date.
A summons for Allowing the Operation of an Uninsured Vehicle was issued to the owner of the vehicle, who lent the vehicle to the two men.
These are allegations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty.
