DENVILLE, NJ – Motor vehicle violations continue to yield bigger charges for Denville police, including the May 26 arrest of a township woman they said was found with marijuana and several open bottles of alcohol while speeding on a local road.

The woman, Stephanie Egger, 36, was stopped for speeding on Palmer Road, police said. During the stop, police “observed signs” of recent drug and alcohol use, they said.

“Through investigation, it was discovered that the driver … was in possession of under 50 grams of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and multiple open bottles of alcohol,” police said. They said they also determined her vehicle registration had expired.

On May 27, Denville police also saw signs of recent drug use when they stopped a car in which Shaquana Roach, 29, of Brooklyn, was a passenger, they said. Police said the car was speeding and had a number of “equipment violations.”

The driver, who was not named in a police press release, was given a verbal warning about speeding and a summons for obstructed view, police said. They said Roach was charged with being in possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

A speeding allegation also ended with the arrest of Lesia Lindsay, 53, of Morristown, on May 27, police said. She was stopped on Route 10 and found to be the subject of six active warrants, police said. They also said Lindsay was driving with a suspended license.

Two active warrants from Dover were found to be in effect when police pulled over 22-year-old Michael Bailey, a Dover resident, on May 26, police said. They said Bailey was stopped for multiple equipment violations, including no front license plate.
