Traffic Stop Leads to Arrest of Passenger


BOONTON TOWNSHIP — On February 16 patrols conducted a motor vehicle stop in the area of four corners. Upon making contact with the occupants of the vehicle the officer detected the odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle.

A probable cause search of the vehicle turned up a burnt marijuana cigarette.

The passenger of the vehicle, identified as Byron Rentas, 27, Mountain Lakes took ownership of the CDS and was placed under arrest before being transported back to police headquarters where he was processed, charged with Possession of Marijuana (Less than 50 grams) and released pending a future court date.

Editor’s Note: An arrest or the signing of a criminal complaint is merely an accusation.  Despite this accusation, the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until he or she has been proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
