FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J. -- A series of Labor Day weekend traffic stops in Franklin Lakes turned up three people wanted on warrants and others carrying pot, authorities said.

It began just after 9 p.m. Friday, when 29-year-old Jaime Ratowsky of Suffern was stopped on Route 208 and charged with marijuana possession, Franklin Lakes Police Capt. John Bakelaar said.

A trio of arrests followed Sunday.

The first came just after 2:30 p.m., when police took 39-year-old Dylan St. John of Hawthorne into custody on pot possession charges following a Franklin Lake Road stop, Bakelaar said Tuesday.

Two followed in rapid succession, both involving wanted defendants:

A stop on Ewing Avenue at 11:03 p.m. led to the arrest of Ilal Ahmed, 26, of Paterson on an outstanding warrant out of the North Haledon, the captain said.

A stop on Route 287 at 11:11 p.m. led to the arrest of William Green, 43, of Baltimore, on an outstanding warrant out of Newark, he said.
