YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Teaneck motorist arrested for carrying pot for sale this afternoon also got hit with a weapons charge for having a plastic replica of a gun in his car, Bogota police said this afternoon.

Bogota Officer Ryan Ward pulled over a white GMC Safari for a traffic violation on Larch Avenue around 12:30 today when he spotted the fake firearm. The orange tip required by federal law on such replicas had been removed, Detective Sgt. Jon Misskerg told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

A subsequent search turned up the pot, he said.

The driver, 24-year-old Alvin White Jr., was being held on $30,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with drug and weapons offenses.
