A complaint called in by a concerned citizen in Auburn led to an arrest on Herdal Drive for concentrated cannabis Monday night.

At approximately 10:12 p.m. Monday the Auburn Police Department responded to the area of Herdal Drive and found seven subjects, three of which were under 18 years of age, in and around one car, according to a press release issued Tuesday night by Auburn Police.

While investigating officers developed a suspicion that there was marijuana within the car and searched the vehicle. During the search Auburn officers recovered several containers of pot and found cannabis “hash” near the vehicle. Officers then arrested 20-year-old Joshua Ryan Mesna for felony possession of concentrated cannabis. Three others were cited for misdemeanor possession of marijuana and released from the scene. Mesna is currently not in custody.
