Drug charges filed against New Jersey driver

Sometimes when people go out and about during their day, it doesn't quite end up how they planned. Recently, this was the case for one man when his trip to the local music shop took an unexpected turn. He was reportedly outside of his car while parked in a parking lot when an officer deemed him to be acting suspiciously. A later traffic stop led to drug charges for the New Jersey man. 

The incident occurred on Wednesday, Feb. 28 during the late afternoon. A police officer was on routine patrol near the music shop parking lot. He says he observed the man to be walking around his car in what he says was a suspicious manner. The man reportedly looked at the vehicle, then got into the car and drove away. 

The police officer followed him and made a traffic stop just before the man was about to enter a highway on-ramp. During the stop, the police officer reportedly detected an odor of marijuana and proceeded to search the vehicle. After the search, police say they located a marijuana pipe with suspected marijuana inside and a container of what they claim to be marijuana oil. The man was charged with possession or marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, possession of a controlled dangerous substance inside of a motor vehicle and a traffic violation -- failure to keep right. 

This New Jersey man was seemingly just trying to go about his day when an encounter with police resulted in him facing drug charges. A charge like this one can have a negative impact on an individual's life, which is why many choose to fight back against criminal charges. A person interested in building a strong defense against drug charges and traffic violations could choose to consult with an attorney for help with his or her defense.
