Routine Traffic Stop Leads To Drug Arrest

arrested by lpd 4 tlsA routine traffic stop on New Hampshire Avenue lead police to making a drug arrest, Detective Captain Paul Daly tells TLS. Police were shooting radar on New Hampshire Avenue when they stopped a vehicle doing 16 miles over the speed limit. Records showed that the driver had an outstanding warrant for his arrest for an unpaid summons, and he was immediately arrested.

When one of the officers sat down in the suspect’s vehicle to close the windows, the officer noticed a strong smell of Marijuana in the car.

After a short search, the officer found a bag with 25 smaller bags of Marijuana, along with a scale hidden in the car.

The suspect was charged with possession of Marijuana and possession of Marijuana with intent to distribute. He was released on bail a short time later.

Arresting officers were Patrolman Kevin Doyle and Patrolman Michael Delvalle. TLS.

  1. “He was released on bail a short time later” is what counts. This guy has a history of ignored summons. Bail is nothing for him: he is a drug dealer. So what’s good about this arrest?

  3. This is another reason why I’m glad I have moved on from Lakewood. Kudos to the cops, but “out on bail” ?! While he was most certainly legally allowed to post bail for such a crime, the bail should have been raised 20x what it was quoted at, as this is a businessman, whose profession is selling drugs, and the cost of bail is just a business expense. A bail bond is usually a small percent of what the bail is set at, so i.e. a 100k bail can cost a few measly percent and cost 2-3k for a get out of jail pass.

  4. # 10. Yes you are 100% correct on that point. The LPD did a great job in apprehending the drug and crime distributor, however our “judicial system” is what needs a comprehensive reform (and not immigration). To make life more difficult for hard working Americans, and easier for gangs, druglords, and the like is NOT the America that I know, and the opposite of the true American spirit.

  5. And that right there is one of the reasons why police perform traffic stops. So next time someone sees an officer sitting on the side of the road “doing nothing”, just stop and think maybe that’s why he/she is running radar. I’m sure not all the time but most of the time. Good job put there guys.

  6. I agree with..aa comment. He’s out on bail already. He had a warrant out for his arrest already… He should be sitting in jail instead of walking the streets. Get rid of the garbage.. It’s not fair to law abiding citizens to have to share the same streets as them. They will never become productive members of society. Lock ’em up!

  7. Now correct me if I am wrong… but everyone complains on this site for being stopped for minor infractions of the law….the guy was only speeding right? why was he pulled over for such a thing? if it was a frum jew being pulled over, everyone would be complaining that it was a minor infraction.. so let’s stop complaining about LPD doing a great job, keep this in mind when you get pulled over for your minor infraction..

  8. in a town with so many gang members and people w/ outstanding warrants runnign around, why don’t the cops just do a road check point or whatever you call it where they stop cars at random and ask for license and registration etc. and pull all these guys out and put them behind bars for good? You know how many they would catch?! They don’t have to pull over everyone, just guys that look like thye need it. Do it late at night when no one is running to work and everyone is running to places they’d better off not being.

    People need to stop breaking the law before they get caught & its too late. cause after your caught theres no turning to Miller or Lichtenstein for help ONLY HASHEM CAN HELP THAT PERSON

  11. Are you trying to compare a so called minor infraction to someone selling/running drugs/narcotics and has an outstanding warrent?? apples & oranges

  12. noooo- he was saying that a minor traffic infraction- that people endlessly complain on this site about being ticketed for- lead to the arrest of a drug dealer.
    good post #18- GO LPD!
