Driver Admitted to Storing Weed in His Glove Box: Blotter

An Orland Hills man was accused of possessing marijuana after a traffic stop on Dec. 5.

A Orland Hills man who rolled past a stop sign in Oak Forest is accused of keeping marijuana in his glove box.

Rodrick A. Johnson, 22, of the 9300 block of West Hunter Drive, was charged with possessing marijuana and cited for disobeying a stop sign, according to an Oak Forest police report.

Cops spotted a blue Buick drive through a stop sign at about 7:06 p.m. on Dec. 5 near the intersection of Forest Avenue and 167th Street, the report states.

An officer could smell a strong odor of burnt marijuana coming from the Buick, the report states. Police had Johnson pull off to Fieldcrest Drive, where he was patted down and his vehicle was searched. It was at that time Johnson told police he had marijuana in the glove compartment.

A bag with 9.8 grams of a green leafy substance, which later field tested for the presence of marijuana, was found, the report states.

Johnson was given a Feb. 5 court date.
