A city man was apprehended with 54 grams of marijuana during a traffic stop Sunday evening, according to Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik.
Tramiaine Mitchell, 34-year-old, has been charged with marijuana possession and distribution. Deputy sheriff Sean Eliasen and officer John Tolerico pulled Mitchell over at around 6:15 p.m. after observing a black Cadillac with badly maintained lamps traveling on Essex and Madison streets.
Authorities discovered Mitchell had several active warrants out of Fairfield Municipal Court. A search of the vehicle yielded several packages of marijuana. 54 grams of marijuana worth $1,000 on the street was seized and $300 in suspected drug proceeds was confiscated, authorities said.
Mitchell was issued several motor vehicle summonses, authorities said. He was processed and transported to police lockup.
