BRADENTON -- A Bradenton man was charged with possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana Tuesday evening, according to the Bradenton Police Department.

According to a report, an officer conducted a traffic stop on Oliver over his suspected illegal window tint. The officer reported a marijuana smell coming from the vehicle and during a search, found three burnt marijuna roaches in Oliver's right front pocket.
