DENVILLE, NJ – One way to end up arrested is to pace back and forth in front of a business, a man discovered recently in Denville. Two others had another technique: leave marijuana out in the open when you get pulled over.

The pacing thing was attributed by Denville Police to Deandre Williams. They said they found the 29-year-old Montclair man doing just that on June 10 when they responded to a call about a suspicious man near Extra Space Storage on Morris Avenue.

“Patrol made contact with the individual who was pacing back and forth in front of the store,” was the way police put it.

While there’s nothing illegal about walking to and fro, it does draw attention. Police said they eventually found that Williams was the subject of an active arrest warrant out of Linden. So while Williams wasn’t charged with strange behavior, he did end up under arrest, police said.

The out-in-the-open marijuana case involved Lazizjon Abdurahanov, 19, and Rashid Alizai, 29, both of Brooklyn. Police said they pulled over a car being driven by Abdurahanov on Savage Road after seeing him fail to stay in his lane on June 8.

“During the course of the stop, Denville Police observed marijuana in plain view in the cup holder,” police said. They also found out that Abdurahanov was driving with a suspended license, they said.

Both men were charged with possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Abdurahanov was also charged with some motor vehicle summonses, police said.
