The thing about trying to stash several pounds of marijuana in a storage unit: People will smell it. Just ask Fair Lawn police.

Investigators called to Life Storage on Wagaraw Road could smell it, too, Sgt. Brian Metzler said.

With help from a Bergen County Sheriff’s Department K-9 team, narcotics Detectives Brian Rypkema, Anthony Lugo and Mark Wyka figured out which unit to obtain a search warrant for.

Inside they found four pounds of pot, along with packaging materials, that they said a Paterson dealer stashed there, Metzler said.

The renter, 34-year-old Milton Hall, was released after police arrested him at his home on charges of having and selling marijuana, as well as having drug paraphernalia.
