The following incidents were listed in the official reports of the Northbrook Police Department. Readers are reminded that an arrest by police does not constitute a finding of guilt; only a court of law can make that determination.
Police on Jan. 23 who were investigating a suspicious vehicle on the 1000 block of Willow Road arrested a Wilmette teenager and two Winnetka boys after smelling a strong odor of burnt cannabis coming from the vehicle. A search yielded two pipes commonly used for smoking drugs, a jar containing a green leafy substance, a small playing card box containing 35 pill capsules, a bag of empty pill capsules, a prescription medicine patch, chewing tobacco, a digital scale, and a bag labeled “Porcini Mushrooms” containing 20.6 grams of mushrooms.
