According to a probable cause statement, one of the wedges Robinson used to unlock the car fell inside when he unlocked the door. When he leaned inside pick it up, Robinson wrote that he smelled marijuana inside the car.

At that point, the statement said, Robinson searched the man and his car. Inside the car, Robinson found a pill he later identified as Alprazolam, also known as Xanax. Robinson said the man claimed the pill was a friend’s.

Robinson also found a locked box in the car, which contained two glass pipes. The man told Robinson that one of the pipes was his, and he had used it to smoke methamphetamine earlier that day, the statement said.

The other pipe was a marijuana pipe. Robinson said he also found electronic-cigarette refills in the car.

The man was taken to the Utah County Jail on a charge of illegal drug possession, possessing drug paraphernalia and possession of tobacco by a minor. The tobacco charge is a class C misdemeanor, while the other charges are class B misdemeanor.
