State Police say four men were caught Tuesday with drugs in the parking lot of a state police barracks in northern New Jersey.

A trooper who was setting out for night patrol from the Totowa barracks smelled marijuana in the parking lot and found three men smoking pot in a car. They were waiting for another man who was inside the station picking up paperwork for an impounded car.

A search of vehicle the three men were in revealed 15 small bags of marijuana and a dozen suspected Ecstasy pills. All four men were charged with possession of drugs.

Authorities say for some reason, the men didn't expect to see a trooper in the parking lot of the state police barracks.
