CORTLANDT MANOR, N.Y. -- A Cortlandt Manor teenager faces charges of marijuana possession after he was pulled over in Putnam Valley, according to Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith.

Joshua D. Roman, 19, was stopped by sheriff’s deputies on Oscawana Lake Road about 5:50 p.m. Saturday for traffic violations, the sheriff said.

The deputy, who reported smelling pot smoke coming from Roman’s vehicle, conducted a search and found a quantity of marijuana, Smith said.

Roman was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor, the sheriff said.

The teen was processed at the Putnam County Correctional Facility and released after posting $250 bail, police said.

If found guilty of the misdemeanor charge, Roman could face up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000, police said.
