Drug offense alleged

Palisade police officers on Saturday arrested Burton D. Shoebridge Jr., 51, on suspicion of multiple offenses, including suspected possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a controlled substance.

Shoebridge was arrested near the intersection of West Fifth and Elberta streets during a traffic stop. Two police officers spotted suspected marijuana inside Shoebridge’s truck when it was parked earlier in the night, according to an arrest affidavit. The officers pulled Shoebridge over when they saw him driving the vehicle later in the evening. The vehicle had expired plates, according to the affidavit.

During a search of the truck, officers said they found a plastic baggie containing a white substance, used needle caps, a bag of insulin syringes, a bag of suspected marijuana and cigarette papers. Shoebridge told officers the substances in the baggies were marijuana and methamphetamine, according to the affidavit. He said he has a medical marijuana card, but was not able to produce it at the scene, according to the affidavit.
