3 accused of smoking pot in NJ police parking lot

TOTOWA, N.J. (AP) — State troopers in northern New Jersey didn't have to go far to make a pot bust. They didn't even have to get in their cruisers.

Police say they caught three men lighting up in a car in the parking lot of the barracks in Totowa.

What gave the men away? Police say a trooper setting out for night patrol caught a whiff of marijuana.

The three men were charged with drug possession. Police say they were waiting for another man who was inside the station picking up paperwork for an impounded car. He was also charged with drug possession.

Authorities say for some reason, the men didn't expect to see a trooper in the parking lot of the state police barracks.
