An 18-year-old girl was busted by Danbury police on multiple counts of drug possession following a vehicle crash on Clapboard Ridge Road.

Emily Burkhardt of Sherman was arrested on Feb. 8, after a police officer responding to the crash detected a strong odor of marijuana emanating from Burkhardt's vehicle, said Danbury Police Det. Lt. Christian Carroccio.
