Traffic stop leads to marijuana arrest

Angel Infante Jr. was arrested for possession of marijuana under 2 ounces at 12:50 a.m. Saturday by Officer Nicholas Reyes.

According to the police report, Officer Reyes was on patrol and witnessed a GMC truck make an improper turn from West Front Street onto MLK Boulevard. The truck reportedly made the turn crossing into lanes.

Officer Reyes reported making the traffic stop at 900 West Hill Street. He noted in his report that once he stepped outside his unit, he could smell marijuana coming from the direction of the truck.

Infante was identified, and allegedly appeared nervous with shaky hands, stuttering voice, sweating in cold weather and not making eye contact with the officer.

Officer Reyes asked Infante to step out of the truck, leaving his female passenger in the truck. Infante allegedly told Officer Reyes he had a bag of marijuana in the truck after being asked if he had anything illegal.

Officer Reyes asked Infante to show him where the marijuana was, and Infante opened the top compartment above the glove box and handed Officer Reyes the bag, according to the report.

The female passenger was asked to step out of the truck and was searched by Officer Sandra Acuna, who reported she had no narcotics on her. She was released when Infante claimed possession of the marijuana.

Infante was placed under arrest. A more thorough search of the truck by Officer Reyes revealed a clear jar behind the fron seat on the passenger side with more marijuana in baggies.

According to the report, nine smoked joints, rolling papers, a glass pipe and a digital scale were also found in the truck.

Officer Timothy Lagesse assisted in processing the truck before it was impounded by Double R Wrecker. The marijuana reportedly weighed 52 grams. The marijuana and contraband was tagged, logged and placed in the narcotics locker.

Infante was processed at APD before being transported to the JWC Jail.
