Farmington Hills Teens Try to Eat Marijuana During Traffic Stop, Police Say

The following information was supplied by the Farmington Hills Police Department. Arrests and charges do not indicate a conviction.

Two Farmington Hills teens face drug-related charges, after at least one of them tried to eat marijuana that another was carrying during an April 19 traffic stop at Ontaga and Independence. 

According to the Farmington Hills Police report, police stopped the vehicle at around 9:15 p.m., because the left brake light wasn't working. Police noticed a strong smell of fresh marijuana, but the driver and a passenger said there was none in the vehicle. While talking with a 17-year-old passenger, police noticed he had balls of marijuana inside his mouth, which the teen then spit onto the street. 

The report indicated that when the 16-year-old passenger got out of the vehicle, a small bag of marijuana fell to the ground. The teen told police that as the vehicle was being stopped, he retrieved the bag from its hiding place in his crotch and gave the contents to the others to swallow. Several pieces of chewed marijuana were found on the floor of the vehicle. 

The driver was ticketed for the equipment violation and released; the other teens were taken into custody. 

Breaking and entering

  • Police responded to a business in the 24000 block of North Industrial Drive early Sunday morning, to alarms triggered by glass breaking and motion inside the building. According to the report, they found a broken window and two flat screen television sets missing from the lobby of the building. 
  • A man who parked a trailer in the 29000 block of Grand River Thursday at 5 p.m. returned the next morning to find someone broke into it and stole tools and equipment. According to the report, someone cut the lift bar for the door lock in order to get inside. Items taken included heavy-duty ladders, a chop saw, air compressor, laser level, pump jack, nail guns, a table saw and a number of hand tools. 

Wheels stolen

A maintenance man for an apartment complex in the 27000 block of Gateway Drive contacted police at around 9:20 a.m. on April 18 to report someone had taken three wheels from a 2012 Buick Verano. According to the report, the owner left the vehicle parked under a carport at around midnight. The vehicle was left sitting on landscaping blocks.

Great dective work! Now we'll be paying for these teenagers to go through our court systems. Court time, court lawyers, parole officer, jail time, etc will be used to process these kids, all on our dime because of marijuana. Waste of time and resourses.
