Ypsilanti Police officers arrested two men Wednesday after they found a half pound of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and illegally possessed prescription medication in their car

The incident occurred when police stopped a vehicle at 10:32 p.m. near the 400 block of South Huron Street in Ypsilanti. After a search using K-9 units, officers found the items in a hidden compartment.

Both the driver and passenger were arrested, one an 18-year-old man and the other a 19-year-old man. Both suspects were identified only as residing “out of the county” by an Ypsilanti Police Department press release.

Another motorist first contacted police about the vehicle, suspecting that the driver was intoxicated, and followed them to a nearby gas station. After police arrived, K-9 officer Schembri and K-9 Buky conducted a narcotics search, which revealed the hidden compartment containing the illegal drugs and paraphernalia.

Both suspects were arrested and processed, the 18-year-old on the charge of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, and the 19-year-old on possession of marijuana. The case has been referred to the prosecutor's office, according to YPD.

Police said an investigation into the robbery is on-going.
