Pottstown Man Hit with Drug Charges at Kimberton Auto

Police say he and an acquaintance were high in the parking lot.

A Pottstown man faces drug charges after police say he and a friend were smoking marijuana in the parking lot of Kimberton Auto late last month.

According to court documents, an East Pikeland police officer pulled into the lot on October 28 at 12:13 a.m. when he saw a running car parked suspiciously.

In the course of conversation, the officer came to suspect one of the men was hiding something from him. When the officer exited his cruiser, he saw the man put a container in the back seat of his car in a “sly manner.”

The officer smelled burnt marijuana and saw a glass pipe inside the partially open container.

Both men admitted to smoking marijuana and were charged.

A search of the container produced the glass pipe, a silver grinder, five used Ziploc bags, two small baggies, two packages of rolling papers, a note pad, and several small pieces of burnt material the officer believed to be marijuana residue.

Residue inside the bags and the grinder field tested positive for marijuana.

The suspect also handed the officer a bag containing a leafy green substance, also believed to be marijuana.

Another useless, non-informative Patch article. WHO WHO WHO, the first of the four rules of reporting.....WHO , What , Where , When........if you can't report a full story then don't bother reporting it at all. DUH.......

Many publications don't report the names of people who commit crimes that fall below the level of felony, Jim L. But thanks for the typically thoughtful comment.

The only reason people are reading about their local police activity is so they know who to avoid on the road, etc. I understand your statement re: felony, but in this setting I believe you should report identity as a service to your readers and the five w's of journalism still do apply to make it something that people want to spend their time reading.
