A 17-year-old new driver from Norwalk was stopped for speeding and received a warning for having pink tinted headlamps, as well as infractions for a passenger restriction violation, and both Marijuana possession and drug paraphernalia possession.
One thing leads to another and on Sept. 18, 2013, a female Juvenile, 17, of Norwalk who was stopped for driving 40mph in a 25mph zone on Belden and Range Rd at 8:36p.m. was also issued a warning for having pink tinted head lamps and an infraction for a new driver passenger restriction.
During the stop, police detected the odor of marijuana and the car was searched, according to Wilton Police.
During the search police found a grinder, a small clump of marijuana directly in front of the driver's seat on the floor about the size of a nickel. The driver was issued and an infraction for possession of less than 1/2 oz of marijuana. She was also found in possession of drug paraphernalia, which in this case was a purple color marijuana grinder, according to Wilton Police.
The driver was allowed to drive home, but the passenger had to call for a ride because of the laws for new drivers that prohibit passengers. The driver was referred to juvenile court.
