BOLINGBROOK — Police say a loud muffler led to a pot bust early Tuesday.
A patrol officer stopped a 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer for excessive noise about 12:30 a.m. at Glengary and Harwood drives and noticed a strong odor of marijuana, according to Lt. Mike Rompa
He said a search of the car found 112 grams of pot inside, the car was seized and the driver, Alejandro Colin-Ramirez, 23, of 541 White Oak Road, Bolingbrook, was charged with possession of marijuana and muffler violations.
In another marijuana case, a village resident was arrested after he was stopped on the street Friday night, found to have 57 grams of marijuana with him and struck an officer before fleeing, according to police.
Rompa said officers responded to a robbery call about 9:30 p.m. to the 100 block of Jamestown Lane and found John Gooden, who matched a suspect’s description, nearby. Gooden punched an officer and fled on foot with “multiple bags of (marijuana) on his person and discarded a larger bag while being pursued,” Rompa said.
Gooden, 21, of 135 Somerset Lane, was charged with possession and sale of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, aggravated battery and resisting arrest. The robbery that brought police to the scene is under investigation, Rompa said.
911 abuse leads to arrest
JOLIET — A woman who grew angry when police would not help her retrieve some belongings after a domestic dispute ended up getting arrested Monday, police said.
Officers went to the 700 block of Clement Street about 9:15 p.m. for a domestic dispute, and Elizabeth M. Pope, 28, asked them to stand by while she took her possessions from the residence, according to Cmdr. Al Roechner.
He said Pope called 911 awt 11:45 p.m. because she wanted to go back and get more stuff, was told that retrieving property was not a valid reason for calling 911 and then called 911 five minutes later to complain profanely.
Pope was charged with disorderly conduct.
