Chantelle White, 21, of Brooklyn, N.Y., was arrested Tuesday night after marijuana was reportedly found in her vehicle.
Police said the vehicle was initially stopped on Interstate 95 between southbound Exits 17 and 18 for a motor vehicle violation. When the officer approached the vehicle, he reportedly smelled the odor of burnt marijuana coming from the passenger compartment. The officer subsequently found paraphernalia commonly used to smoke marijuana, which led to the discovery of marijuana in White's purse, according to the report.
White was charged with possession of a controlled substance, and released on a written promise to appear July 8 in Norwalk Superior Court.
