Adriana Welby, 22, of Ridgefield was charged with possession of less than one-half ounce of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia following a motor vehicle stop on Ridgefield Road near Linden Tree Road on Sunday, Nov. 18 at 10:10 p.m.
According to police, a car was pulled over because its right brakelight and left taillight were out. Upon investigation, officers detected the odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle, which led to a search of it. Officers located a small bag of marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the purse of Welby, who was a passenger in the car.
Welby was issued an infraction ticket for the offenses.
