    WARWICK,RI — The driver of a white 2014 Nissan Xterra passed a WPD police cruiser n Rte. 95 north at 80 mph Sept. 29 at 11:52 p.m. carrying methamphetamine pills with no prescription, earning himself a felony possession charge.

    Shortly after the SUV passed Warwick officer Jedidiah Pineau and Sgt. Stephen Major in the 55 mph zone near exit 12, the policemen caught up up to the vehicle just over the Cranston city line, and pulled it over, according to Pineau’s report.

    Both officers approached the vehicle, and Pineau identified the driver as Aidan Ofarrell, 22, of 90 Blueberry Lane, Jamestown, RI. Major noted a marijuana cigarette near the center console, the officer reported.

    Ofarrell said he didn’t have a medical marijuana card, and that while there were numerous other marijuana cigarettes in the car, there was no other marijuana. The officers checked the car anyway, finding an unlabeled prescription bottle in a backpack containing several methamphetamine pills. There were 26 pills of three assorted types of methamphetamine, worth about $220 combined, according to the report.
