On January 11, 2011 at approximately 12:56 am Patrolman Michael Reuter was on patrol on Middletown Lincroft Road when he stopped a vehicle for committing a motor vehicle violation. Upon approaching the driver, identified as Daniel Dimaio, age 19 from Walker Lane in Shohola, Pennsylvania, Officer Reuter detected a strong odor of raw marijuana coming from the passenger compartment.
Officer Reuter informed Dimaio of his observation at which point Dimaio asked Officer Reuter for permission to exit the vehicle. Once out of the car, Dimaio retrieved a zip lock baggie from his pants pocket and handed it to Patrolman Reuter. The baggie contained a green vegetation which Officer Reuter recognized as marijuana.
Dimaio was placed under arrest and transported to police headquarters where he was charged with Possession of under 50 grams of marijuana and Possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a motor vehicle. He was processed and released on his own recognizance.
