A traffic stop in Petaluma on Tuesday afternoon led to the arrests of four Petaluma residents on a variety of drug and other charges, police said. At 12:43 p.m., police stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation at Petaluma Boulevard North and East Washington Street.

The officer noticed the smell of marijuana coming from inside the car, according to police. The officer then determined that the driver, later identified as 39-year-old Gregory Granieri, had a suspended license, police said. The front passenger, 32-year-old Jacob Allison, had an outstanding warrant for possession of controlled substances.

The rear passengers, 22-year-old Stefanie VanGuilder and 31-year-old Michael Shea, were on probation, according to police. Police said a hypodermic needle with heroin was found on Shea and a switchblade was found on VanGuilder. A small amount of marijuana was found under a seat in the car. All four suspects were arrested and transported to county jail.
