Police: Window Tint Leads to Drug Arrest for Phoenixville Man
East Pikeland Police made the arrest last Wednesday on Ridge Road.
East Pikeland Police are reporting that they arrested a local man last week who was in possession of marijuana he intended to sell.
According to court documents, on January 30 at 1:18 a.m., an officer on patrol pulled over a white Volkswagen on Ridge Road because the vehicle’s windows were tinted to a degree that was illegal.
The officer noted that the driver, Herbert Lee Williams, 19, smelled like marijuana and removed him from the vehicle to perform a search. During this pat down—during which Williams denied being in possession of marijuana—the officer’s partner saw a large plastic bag filled with ten individually packaged bags of what appeared to be marijuana sitting by the center console.
The substance was confirmed as marijuana at the East Pikeland Police station and Williams admitted that it was his.
Williams was charged with manufacture, delivery, or possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He faces preliminary hearing on February 7.
