Blotter: Teen Had Booze, Marijuana, Fake ID

Pennsylvania man was one of two people arrested last week for alleged marijuana possession, according a police news release.

As Madison police were processing an 18-year-old Coopersburg, Pa., man on a charge of underage possession of alcohol, police discovered the man allegedly had marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a fraudulent driver's license on him, authorities said.

Patrolman Matthew Mirabella arrested Sean Bissey at 10:08 p.m. Saturday after Mirabella initially stopped a vehicle in which Bissey was a passenger on Madison Avenue for an alleged equipment violation, police said.

Mirabella then determined Bissey allegedly was in possession of alcoholic beverages and arrested him, according to a news release.

Bissey was taken to headquarters for processing and, during processing, it was discovered Bissey allegedly was in possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and a fraudulent driver’s license, and Bissey was charged with additional violations, police said.

After processing, Bissey was released pending a court appearance, police said. Detective Sean Plumstead assisted with the arrest.
