WHITEHALL, Pa. (AP) — Police in one Pittsburgh suburb have come up with a new twist on an old adage: Where there’s smoke … there’s marijuana.
WPXI-TV reports Friday that Whitehall police cited a man for marijuana possession after they responded to a smoke alarm at his home about 6:30 p.m. Jan 15.
When police arrived, they didn’t find a fire — but they did smell marijuana and questioned the man. Police say he admitted smoking pot, and police then found a small amount of the drug and some related paraphernalia.
Police didn’t arrest the man. He’s being mailed a court summons to respond to charges of marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
