Anthony Singh, 27, of Jersey City, was hit with a multitude of charges including possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, bail jumping and driving with a suspended license, according to Port Authority police spokesman Joe Pentangelo.
At about 10:20 a.m. yesterday, a Port Authority cop saw Singh driving a 2009 Toyota with a broken tail light traveling eastbound in a toll lane just prior to entering the Holland Tunnel, officials said.
The police officer stopped the car for the traffic violation and she noticed a strong smell of burnt marijuana wafting from the Singh’s car when he opened his window, police said. Singh admitted to having marijuana inside the vehicle and admitted that he â€œsmoked recreationally.â€
A marijuana grinder and 14 containers filled with marijuana residue were located on the floor of the car and Singh was arrested, authorities said.
A subsequent computer check revealed that his driver’s license was suspended and Â there was an outstanding $2,500 criminal court warrant for him out of Newark, officials said.
The Port Authority had arrested Singh on the same charges back in January, police said.
