Police officers noticed two men riding around on Washington Avenue in Albany on Tuesday. The vehicle did not have lamps around the license plate, so the officers stopped the driver. There was no way for the officers to know that the occupants had drugs in their possession.

When members of the Albany County Sheriff's K-9 Unit and the Criminal Investigation Unit pulled the vehicle over, they could smell marijuana coming from the vehicle.

The driver, 25-year old Darnell Rollins, and his 18-year old passenger, Xzobiaire Green, were both arrested during a traffic stop.

Police officers searched the vehicle, and they confiscated $1400 in cash, a replica of a Walter pistol, a digital scale, marijuana, and cannabis package for sale.

The passenger, Xzobiaire Green, was arrested and charged with one count of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the fifth-degree (Felony); One count of Possession of a Controlled Substance in the seventh-degree (Class A Misdemeanor); and one count of Unlawful Possession of Marijuana in the second -degree (Violation). Mr. Green was taken to the Albany County Correctional Facility until he faces arraignment today in the City of Albany Court.
