Detective Sgt. Michael Martic reported smelling a strong odor of burnt and raw marijuana after stopping the 2009 Nissan Altima on Fairview Avenue at Bergenwood Road just before 9 p.m.

Officer Michael Hartmann arrived moments later, followed by a Bergen County Sheriff’s K-9 who indicated the presence of drugs.

Sgt. John Pierotti, a drug detection expert, was brought in and Martic obtained a search warrant that led to the discovery.
