An illegal right turn at the intersection of East Hickory Street and South Bell Avenue led to a man’s arrest Sunday after a Denton police officer found marijuana in his vehicle, according to a police report.

The officer saw the vehicle make the prohibited right turn and made a traffic stop. While talking to the driver and passenger, the officer noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle, the report stated.

During a search, the officer found 1.9 grams of marijuana inside a plastic container in the glove compartment, along with a grinder and a glass pipe. The man was arrested for possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana, the report stated.
