A Sunday night traffic stop in Troy resulted in a 23-year-old Portage man’s arrest and the seizure of several drugs, including marijuana, LSD, and cocaine, police said.

The traffic stop was made on eastbound East Big Beaver Road (16 Mile), west of John R, at about 10:30 p.m. Sunday, after seeing a silver 2006 Pontiac G6 drive erratically.

Officers “detected an odor of marijuana emanating from inside the vehicle,” then saw a Frisbee on the driver’s side floorboard “that contained suspected marijuana particles,” according to a release Tuesday from the Troy Police Department.

Both the 23-year-old man who was driving and the 21-year-old female passenger allegedly admitted to smoking marijuana within the last hour, police said. The driver was asked to step out of the vehicle. He complied with sobriety tests, but police say he performed poorly.

The man was arrested. Police pulled the passenger out of the vehicle to talk, but then allegedly found a yellow pot pipe on the passenger floorboard.

Officers searched the vehicle, and found a black box in the back seat. Inside, they allegedly found a bag of cocaine, a bag of “narcotic mushrooms,” a pot grinder, a scale, and “several strips of paper believed to contain LSD,” according to the statement.

Police searched the woman’s purse and say they found five Adderall pills, a “Schedule II” narcotic. Schedule II narcotics are defined as drugs with a high potential for abuse, with use potentially leading to severe psychological or physical dependence, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The woman was arrested on possession of drug paraphernalia, illegal possession of prescription drugs, and marijuana use.

The driver was taken to the police lock-up in Troy and agreed to take a blood test. The suspected cocaine was tested and found to be real, as well the marijuana and LSD, police said.

The man was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, delivery of an imitation controlled substance (for the LSD), and, pending laboratory results, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of narcotics.
