Farmington Police Find Marijuana in Boxing Glove

The following arrest information was supplied by the Farmington Public Safety Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

A 28-year-old Madison Heights man faces a charge of marijuana possession, after Farmington Public Safety officers stopped a vehicle in which he was a passenger on Dec. 17. 

According to the report, an officer spotted the vehicle traveling 50 miles per hour in a 70-mile-per-hour zone on M-5 near Farmington Road at around 2:30 a.m., and a check of the vehicle showed the registered owner had a revoked driver's license. The vehicle was stopped at M-5 near Halsted, and the driver identified herself as the owner's niece. The officer noticed an odor of marijuana, and the passenger turned over a small bag of marijuana from his pants pocket. In searching the vehicle, officers found two other small bags of marijuana concealed in a boxing glove, the report indicated.

Theft from vehicle

A resident living in the 34000 block of Arundel contacted Farmington Public Safety Dec. 16 to report that someone took a phone charger from his vehicle the previous night. According to the report, the vehicle was left unlocked while parked in his driveway overnight. The resident told officers that the charger didn't work. 

Breaking and entering attempted

The owner of a home in the 23000 block of Wilmarth called Farmington Public Safety Dec. 19, after finding a window pane broken on a door that leads from a sunroom into the house. According to the report, the officer who responded noticed pry marks on the door and door frame, but nothing was taken.

Reminds me of another police call from days gone by. A man got out of his car, and when he stood up, a bag of marijuana fell out of the leg of his pants. He told the officer those weren't his pants.

Calling the police because his broken cell phone charger was stolen from his unlocked vehicle? I don't even know what to say about that....
