Marijuana Arrest:  On October 15, 2016 at 8:47 a.m., Ptl. Matthew Halligan performed a random license plate check on a vehicle traveling on the Boulevard.  The vehicle was identified as having an expired registration.  Ptl. Halligan stopped the car and made contact with the occupants.  During their conversation, the officer smelled what he recognized to be the odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle.  After a brief investigation and probable cause search of the vehicle, two glass pipes with marijuana residue and a small plastic bag of suspected marijuana were located.  Jordan E. Somers, 22 years old from Franklin, was arrested, transported to headquarters and processed.  Ms. Somers was charged with possession of under 50 grams of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and having an unregistered vehicle.  She was released on her own recognizance and has a pending municipal court appearance.
 
Hindering Arrest:  On October 15, 2016 at 11:17 a.m., Ptl. Jack Lyon observed a vehicle traveling on Route 23 North make an unsafe lane change with a brake lamp not working.  Ptl. Lyon stopped the car and made contact with the operator.  During his investigation, the officer observed the driver acting nervously and believed that she was not being truthful about her identity.  After a records check and brief investigation, the driver was positively identified through her fingerprints.  A search of her person and vehicle resulted in the discovery of two state issued identification cards that had been altered.  Christine M. Lombardi, 52 years old from Drums, PA was arrested and processed at police headquarters.  Ms. Lombardi was charged with hindering her own apprehension, two counts of possession of an altered driver’s license and failing to maintain the lamps on her vehicle.  She was released on her own recognizance and has a pending appearance in municipal court.
