MONROEVILLE - Police found 219 grams of marijuana Saturday in the vehicle of a college student driving from California to Oberlin.
Garrett J. Openshaw, 19, of Redding, Calif., was charged with trafficking in marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He also was charged with underage possession of alcohol in connection with having peppermint Schnapps and an open container violation.
After stopping Openshaw for a headlight violation, Monroeville Police Officer Kurt Jacobs discovered and confiscated the marijuana and paraphernalia such as a pipe, bowl, glass bong, two packs of rolling paper and an abundance of lighters.
Openshaw, who appeared "very nervous" after being stopped, told Jacobs he had smoked marijuana about three hours before the traffic stop. Openshaw currently is in custody at the Huron County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
