Patrick Stanley Arrested While Rolling Marijuana Cigarette

V.I. Police Department officers on St. John arrested Patrick Stanley last week when they observed him in Cruz Bay rolling a marijuana cigarette.

VIPD officers also confiscated more than a dozen small bags of marijuana packaged for sale from Stanley.

VIPD officers said they saw Stanley on Thursday, March 15, at about 9 p.m. near a beach bar rolling what appeared to be a marijuana cigarette.

When police checked the suspect he was in possession of 13 small plastic bags of what was later field tested to be marijuana. Stanley also had a three inch switch blade in his pants pocket.

Stanley was arrested and held on a $10,000 bail. He was remanded to the custody of the Bureau of Corrections on St. Thomas pending his court appearance.
