Traffic Stop Leads to Pot Charge
Man faces additional charges after speeding on Interstate 77.
A 27-year-old Cleveland man faces a marijuana charge after he was stopped by the Brecksville Police for speeding in the early morning of Jan. 27.
Officers stopped the man for speeding northbound on Interstate 77 at around 1:30 a.m., when they learned that he didn’t have a valid drivers license.
He was taken to the police department for booking, and his vehicle was towed.
