Fenton Police have ticketed two area residents for possession of marijuana recently.

Police Chief Rick Aro said officers made a traffic stop on a vehicle on Silver Parkway for a car that was driving 47 mph in the 35 mph zone around midnight on Nov. 2.

The officer noticed a strong smell of marijuana, according to the report, and then later found a small amount of the drug in the car’s center console. Police gave the 24-year-old Fenton resident a ticket for speeding and possession of marijuana, Aro said.

In another case, around 9 p.m. Oct. 25, Fenton police made a traffic stop on a vehicle on North Adelaide Street near Wood Street, police said.

Aro said the officer noticed a strong smell of marijuana and later found a small amount of the drug in one of the passenger’s shoes.

Fenton police arrested the 35-year-old Fenton resident for possession of marijuana, the same charge he was on probation for, according to police.

Stolen purse

Police are investigating a theft of purse that occurred in the Walmart parking lot around 6 p.m. on Oct. 27.

Aro said a woman had her purse sitting in the front seat of her 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe when she returned her cart to a cart coral and noticed a man running from her vehicle and drive away in a green S-10 truck . Aro said a witness also observed the incident and was able to get the license plate number of the vehicle.

Police contacted the owner of the vehicle, who said his son was in possession of the vehicle. Police were able to locate the suspect and arrested him on outstanding warrants.

Aro said Fenton police have requested a warrant from the prosecutor for the 21-year-old Laingsburg resident.

Speeding Yes Pot NO! It is no big deal. Leave it alone.

So, we are probably going to lock up these people for possessing marijuana instead of helping them recover from their substance use disorder. Addiction is not a crime; it is a disease of the mind, spirit, and body. People MUST have help and hope in order to recover from substance use disorders. Locking them up and making them more hopeless only serves to feed the disease.
