Plainfield police arrested two men early Friday morning after smelling marijuana and finding a large amount of stolen items in the car they were driving.
Driver Joshua A. Thuotte, 22, and passenger Charles C. Lonchiadis, 21, were traveling down Putnam Road in the Wauregan section of Plainfield around 1:49 a.m. Friday when police pulled them over.
Officers smelled marijuana coming from inside the car, and, after investigating, arrested Lonchiadis for possession of synthetic marijuana, possession of marijuana less than four ounces and possession of drug paraphernalia.
While searching the car, police also discovered a large amount of stolen jewelry and a laptop. They determined that the items had been stolen from homes in Thompson, Conn., and arrested Thuotte on related charges.
Lonchiadis was released on a $500 non-surety bond and is due in court July 15. At this time, there is no further information concerning Luotte's arrest.
Police are investigating.
