GREEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A Tuesday morning call for a suspicious vehicle on a residential street quickly turned into a drug investigation for Green Township police.
"It shows our residents that anytime they do see something to call us because this is proof positive of what happens when they do," said Sgt. Jeff Saber.
According to the police report, officers found the driver and his passenger in the car with a frisbee on the dashboard that was holding marijuana. Police arrested Robert Friend, 33, after discovering several bags of marijuana in his vehicle and other unknown pills and substances.
"This is somebody that we need to be taking a look at obviously he's some level of dealer of the marijuana and he's somebody that we want to get behind bars," Saber said.
Officers took 10 small green pills into evidence that bear the Tesla logo. The pills and other unknown materials were sent to the coroner's office to be tested but a quick internet search suggests the Tesla pills may be ecstasy.
"It seems to be whatever the 'flavor of the day' is for those kids, they seem to be stamping it on their pills," Saber said.
Friend is facing felony charges for trafficking in drugs and drug possession. The Cincinnati resident is also facing misdemeanor charges for possession of drug paraphernalia and Obstruction of Official Business.
