Three Orange residents were cited on drug charges after the town’s new narcotics K-9, Trent and his partner Officer Mary Bernegger came across the trio on June 25 at 10:05 p.m.
Officer Bernegger was on patrol with Trent near Tucker’s Ridge when she observed a vehicle parked at the entrance to the closed space.
When confronted with the narcotics K-9, each of the vehicle’s occupants surrendered marijuana and a variety of drug paraphernalia.
An 18-year-old from Wolcott Lane, was sited for possession of less than ½ oz of marijuana; an 18-year-old from Hawkins Road and a 19-year old Ridge Road resident both were charged with possession of less than 1/2 oz of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
All three received infraction tickets for their actions.
(Because these were not arrests, but infraction tickets, Orange Live did not include the boys names.)
