Marijuana Arrest: On April 20, 2018 at 11:15 p.m., Ptl. Sean Higgins observed a vehicle traveling on Route 23 North near Jackson Avenue with an equipment violation.  Ptl. Higgins conducted a traffic stop northbound near River Drive with the vehicle in question and contacted the operator, Brian Leonard, 37 years of age of Glendale, New York.  Ptl. Higgins immediately detected an odor of marijuana and made Mr. Leonard aware of his observation.  After some further questioning, Mr. Leonard admitted that there was a small amount of marijuana in the car.  A search of the car was conducted and Ptl. Higgins located three marijuana cigarettes in a cigarette pack that was hidden between the passenger seat and the center console.  Mr. Leonard was subsequently placed under arrest and transported to police headquarters for processing.  Mr. Leonard was charged with possession of under 50g of marijuana and released pending a court date in the Pequannock Municipal Court.
