A young Barrington woman, 18, faces two drug charges after she was stopped for speeding by Barrington police early Monday morning, Aug. 6.
Angela R. Neff, of 19 Woodhaven Road, was stopped by Barrington patrol officers at 1:53 am near Sullivan Terrace while traveling south on County Road at 50 mph in a 35 mph zone.
Patrol Officer Michael Gregorzek smelled the odor of marijuana in the vehicle, according to Police Chief John LaCross. This allowed him to search the vehicle, the driver and several passengers with Neff.
A small bag of marijuana was found in the car, LaCross said. Neff denied it was her stash, he said.
Neff was taken to the police station and locked in a cell. The passengers were released to their parents.
Neff was charged with driving in possession of a controlled substance and marijuana possession, first offense. She was arraigned and released with a District Court date.
