UPDATE: The two men, both Bethlehem residents, were charged with possessing a small amount of marijuana, according to the police report. Their vehicle was pulled over in a traffic stop after a Bethlehem police officer noticed the vehicle’s headlights were not turned on late at night.
Officers also found drug paraphernalia in the vehicle.
The officer passed the vehicle going the opposite directions on E. 4th Street before conducting the traffic stop.
Two men were arrested by Bethlehem Police at around 1:45 a.m. on Feb. 16 near the corner of Morton and Vine streets.
The men were pulled over while driving their vehicle, a Nissan Altima with a Pennsylvania license plate. At one point, as many as four police cars were on scene. Officers conducted a search of the vehicle, which lasted about 20 minutes.
The two men appeared to be young in age. Officers only said the incident was a “traffic stop,” declining to comment further on the arrest.
The car was later towed at around 2:30 a.m. from Morton Street.
