Chardon man arrested by Westlake police for marijuana

WESTLAKE — Roger Ward, 22, of Chardon, blew the whistle on himself when it came to some drug charges Friday night, Westlake police said. Ward pulled into the police station, next to Westlake High School, identified himself as a referee for the Westlake vs. Olmsted Falls football game and asked an officer where he could park. “The officer noticed the pungent odor of raw marijuana emitting from Ward’s car, as well as the stems and marijuana on the center console,” according to a press release from Capt. Guy Turner, who titled it, “He’ll Wear Stripes of a Different Color.” Police searched the car and confiscated $1,391, a scale, a pipe, plastic bags and a knife, police said. Ward was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of criminal tools, carrying various weapons and preparation of drugs for shipment. He was transferred to the Cuyahoga County jail yesterday. Police noted he was not wearing a referee’s uniform when arrested. “The environmentally friendly (read “green”) concept of pot-purveyors driving to our station and introducing themselves is duly noted; saves on municipal gasoline expenses,” Turner wrote in the release.
