A city man allegedly confessed to possession of illegal substances after police uncovered a small amount of marijuana and crack cocaine in his residence.
Ralph C. Green, 18, of 506 High St., faces charges of possession of a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia and a small amount of marijuana for personal use.
On May 21, city police officers were dispatched to High Street on another call. However, while investigating on the third floor, police allegedly detected the odor of burnt marijuana.
Officers subsequently obtained a search warrant for the third-floor apartment. Inside they allegedly found a small amount of marijuana, a plastic bag containing crack cocaine, a plastic bag that contained several smaller bags, and a kitchen scale.
On May 28, police officers were contacted by Chelonda Thrower-Edwards, a resident of the apartment. She allegedly told police that Green wanted to admit to owning the items police had found.
Although officers explained to Green that he was not under arrest nor was he compelled to talk to them, Green confessed that all the illegal items found on the search warrant belonged to him, according to the court record.
Green was arraigned before District Justice Gary Whiteman. He is out on $10,000 supervised bail.
