Police said that 13 grams of marijuana were found inside a vehicle that allegedly struck two pedestrians in a downtown Glendale alley.

Eugene Milton, 19, and a group of friends were arrested Friday after their vehicle allegedly hit the pedestrians in the alley behind In-N-Out Burger on the 100 block of Brand Boulevard, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

Police were speaking with the driver, 19-year-old Johnny Nadzharyan, when they reported smelling the strong odor of marijuana from inside the vehicle.

After some questions, Milton allegedly told the officers he had 13 grams of marijuana he had purchased with a medicinal marijuana prescription from a location in Pasadena he reportedly refused to identify, police said.
