A microbial approach to agriculture

795 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA 02139

    A microbial approach to agriculture
    The ability of animals to digest plant material is facilitated by tiny microbes in the gut that can break down complex carbohydrates. This dependency on microbes is most extreme in herbivores such as cows, which have developed a symbiotic relationship with their gut microbes.

Cambridge Police Department added 2 new photo...

Earlier this afternoon, while one of our officers was enforcing no left turns at Massachusetts Avenue and Prospect Street, they observed a SUV heading west on Mass Ave making an illegal left turn onto Western Avenue. The officer pulled over the vehicle and immediately smelled a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the two occupants. The driver was not able to provide a license when requested nor any paperwork associated with the rental car. Backup from a nearby cruiser was requested to support the stop due to the occupants furtive movements. The operator, Nathan Brito, 24, Medford, and the passenger were then asked to exit the vehicle and a search of the vehicle was subsequently conducted. While searching the vehicle, officers located four plastic clear bags containing an estimated four ounces of marijuana in the glove compartment. Brito stated there was a knife in his backpack in the rear of the vehicle. Officers then recovered the folding knife with a handle shaped like a gun. All four bags of marijuana and the folding knife were placed in the Property Unit as evidence. Brito will be charged with Possession to Distribute a Class D Drug. The vehicle will be held in custody as the investigation is ongoing. All in all, a job well done to our officers for their professionalism and thorough on-site investigation, which ensured this stop was a safe one and without incident.
