Man cited for possession after he told police his marijuana was stolen

LORAIN — A Lorain man was cited for marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia around 11:35 a.m. Saturday after he told police someone had stolen his marijuana.

Derrick Boone admitted to having a small amount of marijuana after police responded to an unwanted man call in the 4700 block of Chelsea Avenue. Boone, 34, of the 3700 block of Gary Avenue, pulled police Officer Rudy Arce aside to speak with him privately about being upset that someone stole his marijuana, according to Arce’s report. When asked, Boone said he was carrying marijuana in his sweatpants.

A small amount of marijuana was seized. Boone’s girlfriend said she called police after he became angry with her and accused her sons of stealing the marijuana.
