A loud car stereo led police to 160 grams of marijuana and the arrest of two men.

Around 4 p.m. Saturday, Frankfort Police Officer Steven Catron was preparing to get gas when his attention was drawn to “extremely loud music” emanating from a white Buick that was westbound on Kyger Street.

Catron began to follow the vehicle.

“The music was so loud that I was able to hear it blaring from the vehicle before I rolled my windows down, and my air conditioner was still activated,” Catron’s report states.

Catron pulled the car over near Magnolia Avenue. As Catron was writing a citation for the loud music, Officer Wesley Hickson had gained the driver’s consent to search the vehicle.

In the backseat, officers found a plastic sack containing two storage bags full of marijuana and a measuring scale. Police later weighed the drugs and determined it to be approximately 160 grams.

The driver, Shawn P. Isenberg, 20, 1058 Magnolia Ave., was charged with possession of marijuana greater than 30 grams. His passenger, Allen M. Isenberg, 18, also of 1058 Magnolia Ave., was charged with possessing less than 30 grams of marijuana.

According to the police report, officers located five marijuana cigarettes in a package of regular cigarettes in the seat where Allen was sitting.

Shawn was released from Clinton County Jail on a $600 cash bond. Allen was released on a $500 cash bond.
