A man was arrested Monday night after police found cannabis inside his vehicle in the 2300 block of Emerson Street.

Evanston Police Department officers were patrolling the area when they saw the man throw trash out of the window of his vehicle. They stopped the car and discovered 44 grams of cannabis, a scale, two cell phones and cash inside the vehicle, Evanston Police Cmdr. Ryan Glew said. Officers also found that the vehicle’s license plates were registered to another car.

The man was arrested and taken to the EPD. He was charged with possession of cannabis and intent to deliver. He was also cited for depositing litter on the highway and an invalid registration.
