Pair cited for possession, might face pot sales charges

A man and a woman might be facing marijuana sales charges after Grass Valley Police officers responded to a report of suspicious activity at 49er Fun Park.

An alert citizen who knew all the businesses were closed at the time called in the report at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday, said Grass Valley Police officer Clint Bates. Officers responded and found Michael Alan Kryzopolski, 30, and Carrie Brown in a vehicle that was parked in the lot at the fun park on Railroad Avenue.

A search of Kryzopolski allegedly uncovered marijuana hash, a pipe and a syringe, Bates said. He was arrested on suspicion of possession of concentrated cannabis and drug paraphernalia, as well as committing a felony while on bail. He was being held in county jail in lieu of $11,000 bail.

Brown was cited on suspicion of driving on a suspended license, possessing more than one ounce of marijuana and violating probation.

Officers subsequently recovered 1 1/4 pounds of marijuana that had been stashed in some adjacent bushes, Bates said. A follow-up investigation determined there was a suspected drug deal occurring at that location, and both suspects will face additional charges of possessing a controlled substance for sale.
