Possession charges

JERSEY SHORE — Cadence Coleman, 25, of 208 Stover St., Jersey Shore, allegedly had bath salts, marijuana and LSD in her home when Tiadaghton Valley Police knocked on her door in response to noise complaints.

Coleman was allegedly playing loud rap music that could be heard halfway down her block the night of Oct. 3, Cody Smith, an officer with the Tiadaghton Valley Police Department said.

Smith said when she opened the door, he allegedly smelled burnt marijuana coming from inside the home. Coleman allegedly consented to a search of the home, and said her friend was smoking marijuana inside.

When police searched the home, they found a brownish granular substance they believed to be bath salts. Additionally, they found marijuana buds and marijuana wax, accompanied with paraphernalia such as scales, packaging material, smoking devices and containers.

Finally, the officers found small white paper wrapped in aluminum foil containing what they suspected was Lysergic Acid Diethylamide, commonly known as LSD.

Coleman was sent a summons to face charges related to the prohibited acts of possessing the drugs, as well as disorderly conduct for playing loud rap music. Her preliminary hearing was scheduled for Dec. 23, and she was formally arraigned by President Judge Nancy Butts Dec. 28. She was released on $5,000 bail during that time.
