On Route 537, 87 stops had been created in an work to curtail impaired, aggressive and distracted driving, with 32 summonses issued for automobile violations. But even far more action was going on in the parking lot, exactly where police patrolled on foot, bicycle and automobile.

In total, 10 summonses had been issued for marijuana possession and five for possession of drug paraphernalia. A single particular person, a 20-year old lady, was arrested for obstruction.

General, police in the parking lot had been involved in nine separate incidents beginning at just prior to five:30 p.m. till just soon after eight:30 p.m. Some highlights:

  • At five:43 p.m., officers encountered a man rolling a blunt in the passenger seat of a automobile with the door open (we’d not suggest this). They searched his vehicle and located far more marijuana, resulting in his arrest for possession of each marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He was processed and released on summons pending a court look
  • At 7:10 p.m., a 20-year old lady was arrested for obstruction, as touched on above, soon after officers checked on suspicious activity in the parking lot. The two guys she was with had been each charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. They had been processed and released on summons pending court appearances.
  • At eight:32, officers observed the occupant of a automobile throw a plastic bag out of the window of the vehicle, which they found to include marijuana. The 19-year old man who allegedly threw the bag was charged with possession of marijuana. He was processed and released pending a court look.

The Jackson Police Division would like to remind you that all of these persons, like any person charged with crimes or offenses, are innocent till established guilty in a court of law.
