Police Report: January 20
3700 block of Rhode Island Avenue: At about 2 pm officers conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for various traffic violations. Investigation of the driver returned an active arrest warrant for failure to appear in court. He was arrested pursuant to the warrant and a subsequent search of his vehicle incident to the arrest revealed that he was in possession of a small quantity of marijuana. While the officers were processing the man for the outstanding arrest warrant they discovered that the warrant had been previously served on him and not removed from the wanted persons database, therefore it was no longer valid. He was released after receiving a state citation for the traffic violation. CDS possession charges are pending.
