Trial Set for Man Caught with 3/4 Pound of Marijuana
The driver was charged with three felonies.
A man caught traveling through Brecksville with three-fourths of a pound of marijuana in his car is scheduled for trial this week.
Kevin K. Robinson Jr., 28, of Oakwood Village, was pulled over Sept. 19 for a routine speeding violation on Brecksville Road, but wound up facing felony charges after police dicovered the marijuana in the car, along with six bundles fo cash totaling $6,100.
His trial is set for 9 a.m. Jan. 16, according to Maria Russo, spokeswoman for Cuyahoga county Prosecutor Timothy J. McGinty.
Robinson faces one count of trafficking in drugs, a third-degree felony, as well as counts of possession of drugs and possession of criminal tools, both fifth-degree felonies.
He was also charged with two misdemeanors: speeding and endangering a child, because his daughter was in the car.
A report said officers who pulled over Robinson for speeding could smell fresh marijuana in the car.
Robinson said he was on his way to court for a previous speeding violation. Because he was on probation, police were able to search his car without a warrant and came up with nearly a pound of marijuana and the cash, bundled into packs of $1,000.
