Shortly before 11 p.m. June 13, an officer was sitting 100 feet from the roadway when he “could hear music loudly being played from inside” a gold Mercury driving down Meadow Avenue, reports said.
The officer made the driver pull over and reportedly smelled a strong odor of cannabis while speaking with William J. Wirtz, 18. Wirtz and a 17-year-old woman were asked to step out and officers allegedly found a bag containing six grams of cannabis, $262 and a bottle of 47 pills that were not prescribed.
Wirtz, of 910 Meadow Ave., was booked into the county jail on charges of cannabis possession, possession of narcotics with intent to deliver and illegal sound amplification.
