Police Blotter: Traffic Stop Leads to Drug Arrest

Also recently in Lawrence Township, a woman was arrested after she was found at a Route 1 motel with a car that had been reported stolen from Trenton, police said.

Drug Offense

Nicco Baumann, 18, of Totowa was charged with possession of prescription medication without a prescription, possession of drug paraphernalia and underage possession of alcohol, and his passenger, Robert Gilrain, 18, of Wayne was charged with underage possession of alcohol after the vehicle being driven by Baumann was stopped by police about 9:45 p.m. on Friday, March 8, according to Lawrence Township police spokesman Lt. Mark Ubry.

Officer Ryan Dunn initiated the traffic stop after observing Baumann drive through the painted median along Lawrence Road (Route 206) prior to turning into the south entrance of Rider University, Ubry said. During the stop, he said, Dunn observed a 30-pack of beer in the back of the vehicle.

With both the driver and passenger below the legal drinking age, Dunn investigated further and discovered two loose prescription pills for which Baumann could not produce a prescription, as well as a grinder and other drug paraphernalia, Ubry said.
