Austin police arrested three Albert Lea residents early Saturday after finding 90 grams of marijuana and various drug paraphernalia in their car.
Police Chief Brian Krueger said officers stopped a 2005 Chevy Impala at about 1:53 a.m. Saturday near Fourth Avenue and 16th Street Southeast. A 19-year-old Albert Lea man, a 16-year-old male teenager and a 26-year-old Albert Lea man were taken into custody after police found pot in the car, according to a police report.
Krueger said the 19-year-old driver was also charged with driving after revocation, and police seized and had his car forfeited. The 26-year-old man forfeited about $480 in cash and the 16-year-old forfeited $359 in cash, as well.
Both adults were taken to Mower County jail pending formal charges, while the 16-year-old was released to his father.
