One environmentally-unfriendly Kingston man has been charged after he was pulled over by police and found to be in possession of marijuana and crystal meth.

At approximately 11:20 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 25, 2019, the accused man threw some garbage out of a car window while stopped at a downtown intersection. One intersection behind him, an officer in a marked cruiser saw the act of littering and immediately pulled the accused man over. As the officer approached the vehicle, he observed a large bong between the legs of the accused man, the passenger, and could smell “freshly burnt marijuana,” according to a press release from Kingston Police.

The accused man was asked to exit the vehicle, and, as he did so, the officer observed a clear plastic bag on the driver’s seat, which contained a substance suspected to be crystal methamphetamine.

The 27-year-old local man was charged with possession of a controlled substance.

NOTE: This article originally stated that the arrested man was the driver. That was incorrect and due to miscommunication between Kingstonist and Kingston Police, who originally indicated the man was the driver, and then corrected to say he was, in fact, the passenger.
