On 01/10/2009 at approximately 2226 hours, OFC R. T. Wharton of the Frederick Police Department was on patrol in the area of the 1000 block of Heather Ridge Dr. when he observed a vehicle leaving an area known for a high level of CDS activity. OFC Wharton observed that the vehicle had an illegally modified exhaust system and stopped the vehicle in the area of T.J. Drive and Opossumtown Pike.

A K-9 officer was called to the scene of the traffic stop and the K-9 handler advised that the K-9 alerted tot the presence of a narcotic odor coming from the vehicle. The vehicle was then searched and a quantity of suspected marijuana was recovered from several places within the interior of the vehicle. The vehicle operator (Phaeton) as well as his three passengers were arrested and charged as listed below.

All of the arrestees were transported to Frederick County Central Booking for processing and appearances before the District Court Commissioner. All were released on their own recognizance.
