Harrison PD Charge Man With Marijuana Possession

HARRISON, N.Y. – A Harrison resident, who got the attention of police for being double parked on Purdy Street, was later arrested for unlawful possession of marijuana.

When police approached the car on Aug. 22 at 5:22 p.m. and the driver rolled down his window, they smelled a “strong odor of marijuana coming from the car,” police said. They then ordered the man out of the car and did a search of him but did not find narcotics or contraband.

While searching the car, an officer found “removable/portable ash tray located in the center console containing marijuana.”

The man was placed given summons on the scene for double parking and unlawful possession of marijuana, which is a violation. He was released on the scene and has a court date in September on the charges.
