A Charlie Cooper Road, Braselton, resident reported a suspicious vehicle near a pond on his property, which turned out to belong to a juvenile male’s vehicle. The teen told the complainant he was waiting on a friend who lived near there and was just “hang(ing) out” and became lost in the dark. A deputy asked the teen if he had anything in his vehicle that he needed to know about and the teen admitted to possessing a “marijuana pipe” and a “marijuana grinder.”
After gaining consent to search the vehicle, the deputy located the paraphernalia and some loose pieces of marijuana, but not enough to charge the teen with possession, he reported. The deputy smashed the pipe and grinder with his foot and then asked the complainant if he wanted to serve the teen with a criminal trespass warning. The complainant said he thought the teen had learned his lesson and he did not want one issued to him. The deputy told the teen that he was free to go, but said that he needed to change the things he was going and make better decisions.
