Martin R Robles (PCSO)

A Maricopa man faces drug charges after he was arrested April 30 by police.

Martin Robles, 26, was charged with transporting marijuana for sale, and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia after a traffic stop, according to police.

Police said they stopped Robles around midnight on West Honeycutt Avenue because his vehicle did not have a valid license plate. When officers approached the vehicle, they detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. Martin said he did not have a medical marijuana card, police said.

During a probable cause search of Martin’s vehicle, police found about 110 grams of marijuana, a scale and a grinder. They also discovered two smaller packages of marijuana made to appear as though it was store-bought, and numerous empty medical marijuana-style plastic baggies, police said.

Also found was a roll of blank prescription marijuana sticker labels and drug paraphernalia, including cigar blunts and rolling papers, as well as $240 in cash and another small baggie of marijuana in the center console of the vehicle, police said.

Robles was arrested and booked into Pinal County Jail.
