BOLINGBROOK – Police say a Naperville man had 34 grams of marijuana in his car when he was pulled over last week.

Lt. Mike Rompa said officers stopped a tan 1992 Buick Park Avenue at about 4 p.m. on July 1 when the driver disobeyed the stop sign at Fernwood Drive and Lily Cache Lane.

Rompa said police could smell the strong odor of marijuana when they went to approach the driver, who was allegedly unable to produce a driver’s license or proof of insurance.

The man later identified as Franklin A. Morris, 27, then gave a phony name, Rompa said.

Police learned Morris had warrants out in Will and DuPage counties and found a package of marijuana and an electronic scale inside the Buick, Rompa said.

Morris, of the 200 block of East Bailey Road, was arrested and booked into the Will County jail on charges of delivery of marijuana, marijuana possession, driving with a suspended license and driving without insurance. He was released after posting $33,000 bond.
