A Pottstown man faces drug charges after police say he and a friend were smoking marijuana in the parking lot of Kimberton Auto late last month.
According to court documents, an East Pikeland police officer pulled into the lot on October 28 at 12:13 a.m. when he saw a running car parked suspiciously.
In the course of conversation, the officer came to suspect one of the men was hiding something from him. When the officer exited his cruiser, he saw the man put a container in the back seat of his car in a “sly manner.”
The officer smelled burnt marijuana and saw a glass pipe inside the partially open container.
Both men admitted to smoking marijuana and were charged.
A search of the container produced the glass pipe, a silver grinder, five used Ziploc bags, two small baggies, two packages of rolling papers, a note pad, and several small pieces of burnt material the officer believed to be marijuana residue.
Residue inside the bags and the grinder field tested positive for marijuana.
The suspect also handed the officer a bag containing a leafy green substance, also believed to be marijuana.
