A distracted driver was stopped on Junction Road, near Dehmel Road, around 5:30pm on Friday, March 24.
During the stop, officers smelled what they believed to be burning contraband. A search of the vehicle turned up a small amount of alleged marijuana on his person, along with drug paraphernalia. He also had a 16-year-old male from Tuscola County as a passenger.
The contraband and paraphernalia were seized and sent to the Michigan State Police Crime Laboratory for analysis. The two were released, pending results from the crime lab.
Also over the weekend, FPD officers stopped a vehicle for an equipment violation, on West Genesee Street near Mayer Road.

Bond was listed at $491 and he was unable to post it. The warrants were from the Vassar Police Department. FPD officers met the Vassar Police at M-15 and M-46 and he was lodged in the Tuscola County Jail.
