DUI

A Towanda man faces DUI charges for an incident that occurred on Sept. 6.

Pennsylvania State Police said that a car was driving with an expired inspection sticker on Railroad Street in Towanda Township.

A traffic stop was conducted on Elizabeth Street at its intersection with Main Street in Towanda Borough and police approached the driver, 32-year-old Joseph James Johnson, according to court documents.

He had glossy bloodshot eyes, allegedly admitted to recently using methamphetamine and it was discovered that he had a DUI-related suspended driver’s license, said police.

Police asked Johnson to exit the car and while being patted down, he pulled out a THC vape smoking device from his pocket, which led police to conduct field sobriety tests on him and he was placed under arrest for DUI, court documents show.

Johnson faces charges of misdemeanor DUI: controlled substance with impaired ability, misdemeanor DUI: controlled substance: schedule 2 or 3, summary driving while BAC .02 or greater while license is suspended, misdemeanor use/possession of drug paraphernalia, summary operating a vehicle without a valid inspection and summary careless driving and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 10.

Marijuana

Pennsylvania State Police said that 35-year-old Linck R. Grover was driving with an expired registration and did not come to a complete stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Ulster Road and US Route 220.

A traffic stop was conducted and police smelled marijuana, which led to Grover allegedly admitting there was marijuana in the car, according to court documents.

He allegedly agreed to a vehicle search, which led police to find a small amount of suspected marijuana and drug paraphernalia with suspected marijuana residue, court documents show.

Grover faces charges of misdemeanor marijuana: small amount for personal use, misdemeanor use/possession of drug paraphernalia, summary duties at stop sign and summary driving an unregistered vehicle and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 5, 2022.
