July 1, 2010

West U police arrested two Houston residents for possession of marijuana on June 26.

Police pulled over Leonard Roquemore, 19, in the 6500 block of Buffalo Speedway at 5 p.m. for going 46 mph in a 30 mph speed zone.

Police approached Roquemore and noticed a green leafy substance all over his shirt and on the shirt of his passenger, Alvin Taylor, 20.

Roquemore did not have a valid driver’s license and did not have insurance.

When the officer asked him if they had marijuana in the vehicle he said, “There’s a few doobies in the ashtray.”

The officer found marijuana in three different places in the vehicle.

The two men were patted down for weapons and brought to the police station.

Taylor was found with a bag of marijuana in his pants at the police station.

Roquemore was arrested for possession of one gram of marijuana.

Taylor was arrested for six grams of marijuana.

On June 24, Zachry Fulton, a 17-year-old Hockley resident, was arrested for possession of marijuana.

West U police pulled over a vehicle in the 3900 block of Rice for a defective brake light at 2:48 p.m.

Fulton, the passenger in the vehicle, was hesitant to give police his name and said he did not know his address.

The officer asked Fulton to step out of the vehicle so he could be checked for weapons.

The officer asked him if he had anything on his person that could hurt him and Fulton said, “I have marijuana in my shoe.”

Fulton had a Swisher Sweets box containing over one gram of marijuana in his shoe.

Fulton was arrested and transported to Harris County jail.
