West Boca: Two Traffic Stops Yield Drugs, Same Place, Different Days

policelightsBOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Call it a coincidence, call it a crack down in West Boca Raton, but deputies nabbed three people possessing marijuana at roughly the same place on two different days.

In the first incident, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office pulled over a driver at the intersection of Ponderosa Drive and Palmetto Park Road around 1:50 in the morning on April 8th. The driver failed to use a turn signal. Both the driver and the passenger were cited for possessing marijuana under 20 grams. They were given a “notice to appear” and released from the scene.

On April 11th, at North Ponderosa Drive and Judge Winikoff Road — just yards away — a woman was arrested for marijuana possession at 10:30 in the evening. She, too, was given a notice to appear.

It is unclear if police believe there is an increase in marijuana transport through the sleepy suburban communities west of 441 — and if so, whether they are targeting the area in and around Logger’s Run.
