An Alden man and woman were charged with unlawful possession of marijuana after they mistakenly parked on private property along railroad tracks adjacent to Peters Corners Road in Alden about 11:40 p.m. Tuesday. Harold D. Marquart, 17, of Reinhardt Road, and Rebecca Ann Harris, 20, of Walden Avenue, Alden, were charged after State Trooper Sean Mahoney reported smelling marijuana in their car.

Mahoney, who had been sent to check reports of a suspicious car parked near the tracks, advised both suspects they should not park on railroad property in the future. Both were given appearance tickets for Alden Town Court later this month.
