Traffic stop leads to arrest for possession of marijuana


A 21-year-old Mount Pleasant man was arrested for possessing Marijuana with intent to deliver and open intoxicants Sunday afternoon.

According to a Michigan State Police Department press release, the driver was stopped on Pickard Road at around 1:30 p.m. in his 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix and was cited for texting and driving.

The press release said that upon questioning, the man revealed he had “a lot” of marijuana in the vehicle. Michigan State troopers found approximately a quarter pound of marijuana, marijuana butter and an open bottle of Captain Morgan Rum.

Michigan State Police Trooper Randall Jordan, who handled the case, could not yet confirm whether the man was a Central Michigan University student. Jordan said the man will be arraigned in the next couple of days.

Following his arrest and arraignment, the man will likely face at least some jail time, Jordan said.

"The punishment is usually up to the court, not us," Jordan said. "One of the charges was a felony. It usually carries some sort of jail time"
