Several St. Peters residents are calling for their alderman to resign after he was charged with marijuana possession. Alderman Tommy Roberts was charged after St. Peters police found marijuana in his home August 7th.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that about a half-dozen residents called for Roberts resignation at Thursday night's meeting of the Board of Aldermen. None of the aldermen responded to the comments last night.
Roberts, who has Hodgkin's lymphoma, a form of cancer, said shortly after his arrest that the marijuana possession was "a medical issue."
