Five teen-agers were arrested on marijuana-possession charges after a routine traffic stop.

According to State Police in Falconer, a car was pulled over Thursday on County Route 19 for failing to stop at a stop sign. Troopers reported all five occupants were "actively engaged" in smoking pot.

One of them, Shawn C. Anderson, 19, of Corry, Pa., fled into a nearby corn field, but later was taken into custody.

Also arrested were Michael Kightlinger, 17, of Union City, Pa., Jamie Querrveld and Jacob Kopla, both 16 and residents of Clymer, and Joseph Rough, 18, also of Clymer.

Troopers said all five were charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, which is a violation. Anderson also faces two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and three counts of unlawfully dealing with a child. He was arraigned in town of Clymer Court and sent to the county jail on $1,000 bail. The four others were issued appearance tickets.
