Two Stamford men were arrested on drug charges following a motor vehicle stop over the volume of the music coming from the vehicle, police announced Wednesday.
Mitchell Anthony Lebron, 20, of Strawberry Hill Ave., and Ashton Thevenin, 20, of Spruce St., were both charged following the motor vehicle stop.
According to authorities, at approximately 12:45 a.m., a K-9 unit conducted a traffic stop due to loud music coming from the vehicle. As the officer approached the car, he allegedly noticed the smell of burning marijuana, police said.
Police said after using the K-9 Officer to further detect the presence of illicit drugs, Lebron, who was driving, was asked if there was any more drugs in the car. He replied, "There's probably a little bit more," according to police.
Authorities reported they found 3 bags of marijuana, weighing 23.3g, 9.3g and .5g, in the vehicle's center console. They also found 6 pills identified as "Clonazepam" in police reports, a seizure medication.
Lebron was charged on a $500 bond with possession of a controlled substance and obtaining drugs illegally. Thevenin was only charged with possession of a controlled substance and released on a Promise To Appear. A third man in the vehicle was not charged.
Both are due in court June 6th.
