Four arrested in two stops

A routine road safety check on Poultney Street Friday night and early Saturday morning resulted in four men being arrested in two separate incidents.

At approximately 11:47 p.m. on Friday night, a vehicle driven by Krystopher Ross, 21, of Ticonderoga was stopped during a road safety check for excessive windshield tint and a license plate violation. After speaking with Ross, police determined he was in possession of marijuana.

He was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and was issued two traffic tickets.

During the same stop, a passenger in the vehicle, Craig Granger, 22, of Putnam Station was arrested and charged with possessing an open container in a motor vehicle.

Both men were issued tickets to appear in court at a later date.

About a half hour later, at 12:27 a.m., police arrested Christopher Carrara, 22, of Rutland after officers noticed an open container of beer in the cup holder. Carrara subsequently failed a breathalyzer test, registering a blood alcohol content of .12.

He was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated.

A second man in the vehicle, Daniel Howe, 21, of Rutland was arrested and charged on open container violations.

Both men were issued tickets to appear in court at a later date.
