Traffic stop leads to drug arrestLeelanau County Sheriff's deputies stopped a vehicle for loud exhaust in the Village of Suttons Bay Thursday night. The incident occurred at 10:20 pm. When the deputy made contact with the driver, a heavy odor of burnt marihuana was present.
With reasonable suspicion that a crime had been committed, i.e., use of marihuana, the deputy searched the vehicle and located one ounce of the drug. The 18 year-old driver, who was in charge of the vehicle, was arrested for Possession of Marihuana, a one year misdemeanor. Two passengers, 19 and 20 years old, were questioned and released.
After being booking into the jail, the suspect posted $100 interim bond and was released pending a District Court appearance next week.
