Possession: Cory J. Rising, 34, 6599 Royal Parkway North, was charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of marijuana Tuesday. A patrol officer responded to a request to check on the welfare of an allegedly suicidal man in the 400 block of Walnut Street and found the man exiting a vehicle. Rising, the vehicle driver, also exited the vehicle, left it running and approached the officer to speak with him. When the officer detected the smell of unburned marijuana on Rising and asked him about it, Rising said an ounce of pot was stashed in a door of his car, the report said. The officer retrieved a quantity of pot from the car door and two smaller bags of pot beneath the driver seat, the report said; the officer also seized $649 cash from Rising and his vehicle. Rising was arraigned Wednesday in City Court.
