Details of the case:
According to a criminal complaint filed by Corporal Hunsberger, of PSP Clarion, around 9:36 p.m. on September 28, he was traveling east on State Route 322 when he observed a 2007 Buick sedan traveling east at an apparent high rate of speed.
The vehicle was also observed weaving and swerving, striking the fog line and the center line on multiple occasions, the complaint states.
The vehicle was clocked using Clarion Patrol Unit C2-04 traveling 60 MPH in a 45 MPH zone. A traffic stop was initiated at Main Street and 1st Avenue, in Clarion Borough.
Upon the initial approach to the vehicle, Corporal Hunsberger made contact with the driver and sole occupant, Jacob Daniel Jones.
Corporal Hunsberger immediately detected an odor of raw marijuana emitting from the vehicle. Jones related that “the smell could have been coming from his person and/or vehicle because his friends use marijuana around him.” He then allegedly admitted to having marijuana in his backpack in the backseat of the vehicle, according to the complaint.
A probable cause search of the vehicle was conducted, and the following items were seized:
– Three empty Mason jars
– Two Mason jars containing a combine 61 grams of marijuana
– One digital scale
The items were transported to PSP Clarion and entered into evidence. A sample of the marijuana was “NIK tested” confirming the substance contained Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Jones was arraigned at 12:10 p.m. on September 29 in Magisterial District Judge Jeffrey C. Miller’s office.
