Call of suspicious person turns into traffic stop, discovery of drugs
Police were called to a home in the 9500 block of Brecksville Road at 8:33 a.m. on May 22. The resident said a man had tried to open the front door and then ran off.
While police were looking for the man, an officer spotted a pick-up truck without a front plate on Chapel Hill Drive and pulled the driver over. The driver, a 23-year-old Northfield man, said he was lost. He was looking for Mill Road, where he was supposed to be spreading mulch with friends. The officer could smell marijuana in the car. The driver was under suspension. Police brought him out of the truck and searched it; they found a bag of marijuana, which the driver said was his. The passengers were let go. The driver was charged for the possession of hallucinogens, driving under suspension and display of license plates.
