Jahearl Martin, of Rochester, was due in court Wednesday morning to be arraigned on third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, driving with inadequate plate lamp and unlawful possession of marijuana.
Court records, however, show that he did not appear at the arraignment.
On June 20, police said they pulled over a vehicle near the intersection of North Albany and West Buffalo streets after the driver committed a traffic violation. Officers at the scene smelled a “strong odor” of marijuana coming from the vehicle.
Martin and passenger Kentisha Harris, also of Rochester, were taken into custody at the scene.
Harris was charged with a misdemeanor for false impersonation after she gave police a fake name during the investigation, police said.
Martin was previously released on $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.
