Juvenile charged with operating a drug factory

A cracked windshield led Fairfield police to pull over a vehicle carrying four juveniles on March 24. Officers then found enough drugs to charge the driver with operating a drug factory, among other violations.

Included in those other charges was possession of a dangerous weapon in a motor vehicle. An airsoft gun, with no markings to distinguish it from a regular handgun, was found in the car.

When officers pulled the car over, the driver allegedly appeared nervous and was shaking.

While the driver was being questioned, officers said the front seat passenger was making “furtive” movements and reaching under the seat. That is where they allegedly found a small bag containing marijuana.

K9 Ruger was called in and walked around the vehicle. He alerted on the car and officers conducted a search, where they found a black and red duffel bag. Inside were marijuana, more than 800 small plastic bags, a scale, a “marijuana check cook book,” a grinder and assorted other bits of paraphernalia.

Police also found a bottle of vodka and a pill bottle with a pipe in it.

The three passengers were sent home with parents. One was given an infraction for possession of marijuana.

The driver, a 17-year-old male from Fairfield, was charged with operating a drug factory, possession of marijuana with the intent to sell, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a dangerous weapon in a motor vehicle. He was released on a juvenile summons and is due in court on April 1.
