Passenger charged after throwing out white bag

What began as an equipment violation for the driver of a BMW that a Salisbury Police officer was attempting to pull over resulted in the arrest of owner of the vehicle, Matthew Morris, on charges of possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
Officer C.D. Schenk reports that upon activating his cruiser’s blue lights, he observed the right front passenger in the BMW toss a small white bag out the window. He called for an additional unit, stopped the car and placed the passenger, Morris, in handcuffs. Upon searching Morris, Schenk found drug paraphernalia on him.
Schenk also found a small child in the back seat of the vehicle that Morris said was his daughter. The officer called the child’s mother to pick up the child.
With assistance from additional police units, Schenk was able to find the bag at the scene where it had been tossed from the car. The vehicle was searched and no additional drugs found.
Morris was processed at Salisbury Police Department and charged and bond set at $1,000. His court date is Nov. 9.
The driver, Michael Miller, was searched and nothing was found on him. Police learned his driver license was revoked, and Miller was cited with driving with license revoked. His court date is Dec. 4.
