Purported search for runaway leads to Mill Valley marijuana arrests

Posted on in

Deputies responded to the Mill Valley residence, but did not find the runaway girl. She reportedly returned home sometime after her father contacted authorities. Nonetheless, a 19-year-old and a 15-year-old were each arrested for alleged marijuana offenses after law enforcement went to looking for the alleged runaway Tiburon teen.

Authorities claim that five people were found in a car parked in the driveway of the Mill Valley residence. The people inside the parked car ranged from 15 to 25-years-old. Deputies say that the female teenager that they were looking for was not among the group inside the parked car. However, deputies assert that they smelled marijuana coming from the parked car and chose to search the car.

The deputies seized a number of items in the search. Officials say that more than an ounce of suspected pot was located in the car, along with a variety of paper and plastic sandwich bags, and a digital scale. Law enforcement concluded that the items must be drug related and arrested the 19-year-old Mill Valley man, and a 15-year-old Marin City boy.

The 19-year-old is accused of possession of marijuana for sale. He was booked into the Marin County Jail on $5,000 bail. The younger teen was taken to Juvenile Hall on an alleged probation violation and suspicion of possession of marijuana.
