By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

SACO, Maine — A trio of teenagers who were hanging out at Diamond Park after dusk on Thursday – which is against the city of Saco’s regulations – all wound up with charges after police allegedly found marijuana in their vehicle.

Calum Hinkle, 18, and Hayden Hood, 18, both of Old Orchard, along with Jason Driscoll, 18, of Biddeford were sitting in a vehicle at the park which is down by the Saco River around 7 p.m., Deputy Chief Jeffrey Holland said.

Officer Keith Mains made contact with the vehicle, and when he spoke with the men, a strong odor of marijuana was detected, according to Holland.

A small amount of marijuana was found in both Hood and Hinkle’s pockets, Holland said, while a bong belonging to Driscoll allegedly was discovered in the car.

Hinkle and Hood were summoned for possession of a usable amount of marijuana, while Driscoll was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, Holland said.
