A NY man was arrested in Wyckoff Wednesday after police say he brought marijuana to the township's municipal court, where he was facing other charges.
At Wyckoff Town Hall Wednesday night while municipal court was in session, Patrolmen Thomas Tully and Kyle Ferreira noticed a car parked illegally outside, Fox announced in a release. On the front passenger seat of the car, police noticed a pill bottle with marijuana inside of it, Fox said.
While cops were examining the car, the owner came out, and told officers the drugs didn’t belong to him, but to his friend, whom he had driven to court to appear on a previous DWI charge, Fox said.
Richard J. Hamedl, 24, of the Bronx, NY, was in the court room when police went inside and arrested him on a possession of marijuana charge, Fox said.
Fox said the incident will find Hamedl back in Wyckoff next month.
“He is scheduled to appear, again, in municipal court on September 25,” Fox said in the release.
The driver also received a parking ticket, police said.
