BREWER, Maine — A Brewer man and a juvenile earned summonses for possession of marijuana in separate incidents Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, according to police.

Just after 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, police saw a suspicious man behind the Hannaford supermarket, according to Sgt. Arden Jones.

When police searched the 15-year-old subject they found a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, according to Jones.

The juvenile was charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and released to the custody of his parents, the sergeant said.

Shortly after midnight Wednesday, police pulled a vehicle over on North Main Street and Officer Liz Kelley smelled marijuana in the vehicle, Jones said.

The driver, Tyler Hoxie, 19, of Brewer admitted to smoking marijuana earlier in the evening, and Kelley found a baggie with a small amount of pot in it when she searched the car, according to Jones.

Police say Hoxie also turned over two marijuana pipes. He was charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia but was not arrested.
