Toms River Man Arrested In Lakehurst For Having 'Pot Brownie' In Car
A 21-year-old Toms River man was arrested Saturday in Lakehurst for allegedly possessing a "pot brownie" in a car, police said.

Jamie Enright, 18, of Howell and James Bartz Jr., 21, of Toms River were arrested, police said.

According to Lakehurst police:

At approximately 1 a.m., Officer Patrick Nurthen stopped a 2013 Mazda for a "tinted-windows" violation on Route 37. When Nurthen approached the driver, Jamie Enright, he detected a strong odor of raw marijuana coming from the vehicle.

Enright admitted to Nurthen that a "brownie" baked with marijuana was in the car. An investigation and subsequent search of the vehicle recovered a brownie wrapped in tin foil - which had the strong odor of marijuana - as well as a marijuana cigarette, and two pills identified as a Xanax and Suboxone.

Enright was placed under arrest at the scene. 

Enright was transported to Lakehurst Police headquarters where she was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of CDS in a motor vehicle, and tinted windows. She was processed and released on a summons to appear in court.

Bartz was arrested at police headquarters after he admitted to officers the pills found in the vehicle were his.

Bartz was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance (Xanax & Suboxone) and possession of marijuana. Bartz was lodged in the Ocean County Jail on $2,500 bail, with no 10 percent option, set by Judge Damian Murray.
