NJ teens arrested on drug charges

A routine traffic stop in Dresden on Saturday resulted in the arrest of three New Jersey teens on drug charges.

James C. Roth, 19, of Hillsdale, N.J., was charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a felony, after he was found to have hashish.

The drug and an unspecified amount of marijuana were found in a lockbox. Police had to obtain a warrant to search the box after marijuana was found in the car and Roth declined to allow officers to open the box.

Aaron S. Band, 19, of River Vale, N.J., and Ross B. Pollack, 19, of Woodcliff Lake, N.J., were charged with unlawful possession of marijuana.

Police stopped the vehicle on Route 22 for speeding.

Roth was arraigned in Granville Village Court and freed on $2,500 bail. The other men were issued tickets to appear in Dresden Town Court at a later date.
